As in previous years the objective of this conference is to provide a communication, education and networking opportunity for scientists engaged in early-phase drug discovery whether in academia, biotech or industry.  As with our highly successful meeting in 2011, attendees will hear world class speakers discussing the challenges and opportunities facing the drug discovery scientist.  The scientific sessions will be complemented by a large poster session, a growing vendor exhibition with over 100 exhibitors including the Innovation Zone, a Media Area, Careers Zone and a number of training sessions.   

This year we are featuring a Lunchtime Session sponsored by SLAS – Informatics: Making Knowledge from Laboratory Data

In 2012 the Drug Discovery Symposium will encompass eight Scientific Sessions.

Assay Development and Screening
Fragment Discovery for Enzyme & Membrane Targets
Primary Cells & Stem Cells in Discovery
Ubiquitin Cascade Biology & Drug Discovery
Advances in Liquid Handling & Detection Technologies
Compound Collection Management & Enhancement
Epigenetic Drug Discovery
