Oxford Global Conferences are pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Discovery Chemistry & Drug Design Congress, taking place at the Intercontinental Geneva on 2 & 3 June 2014. This two day congress has been developed to offer discovery chemistry leaders an executive platform for networking and discussion. Our expert speakers will discuss methods of improving solubility, drugability and potency, while combatting the challenges of an increased demand for molecular complexity. Delegates will hear case studies covering a range of topics, including fragment based discovery, computer aided design for biologics and the role of natural products in discovery chemistry. The congress is part of the 15th Annual Drug Discovery Summit – Europe’s premier networking and discussion forum for pharmaceutical leaders. The congress is also co-located with the 6th Annual Drug Development Congress, a two day event focused on predictive science and translational medicine. Contact Danielle Dalby for more information on attendance, prices or to download the agenda on d.dalby@oxfordglobal.co.uk

Researchers discover that aspartate is a limiter of cell proliferation.
A Gene-Sequence Swap Using CRISPR to Cure Haemophilia
For the first time chromosomal defects responsible for hemophilia have been corrected in patient-specific iPSCs using CRISPR-Cas9 nucleases
New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
New Material Opens Possibilities for Super-Long-Acting Pills
A pH-responsive polymer gel could create swallow able devices, including capsules for ultra-long drug delivery.
New Tool For Investigating RNA Gone Awry
A new technology – called “Sticky-flares” – developed by nanomedicine experts at Northwestern University offers the first real-time method to track and observe the dynamics of RNA distribution as it is transported inside living cells.
Access Denied: Leukemia Thwarted by Cutting Off Link to Environmental Support
A new study reveals a protein’s critical – and previously unknown -- role in the development and progression of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a fast-growing and extremely difficult-to-treat blood cancer.
New Weapon in the Fight Against Blood Cancer
This strategy, which uses patients’ own immune cells, genetically engineered to target tumors, has shown significant success against multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells that is largely incurable.
TOPLESS Plants Provide Clues to Human Molecular Interactions
Scientists at Van Andel Research Institute have revealed an important molecular mechanism in plants that has significant similarities to certain signaling mechanisms in humans, which are closely linked to early embryonic development and to diseases such as cancer.
