Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present the 14th Annual Drug Discovery Leaders Summit, taking place on 10 & 11 June in Geneva, Switzerland. The summit is made up of two co-located events: Innovation Driven Discovery and Discovery Chemistry & Drug Design.

The drug discovery industry faces a decade of monumental change – stem cell research, generic threat, big data challenges, PHC strategies and the growing focus on biologics all threaten to change the face of the global market. This long-established summit will explore the critical opportunities in drug discovery today, while updating key decision makers on the latest technological breakthroughs.

The Innovation Driven Discovery Congress explores new approaches to screening, assay development and target identification, while experts describe the data integration technologies capable of supporting this innovation. Our esteemed speaker panel will also discuss their strategies for harnessing external innovation and building effective collaborative working methods.

The Discovery Chemistry & Drug Design Congress features presentations on lead optimisation, structure-activity relationships and fragment-based drug discovery. Our internationally renowned speakers will also discuss the latest developments in drug design, including anti-target modelling, advances in polypharmacology and structure based design.

The event will be co-located with our 5th Annual Drug Development Congress; a high-level meeting for those working at the forefront of research, development and translational medicine.
