Drug Discovery Re-Invented; Emerging Role of Biotechs, Academics and Non-Profits

16 Oct 2013 - 19 Oct 2013 - Scottsdale, AZ, USA

Poster Submission Deadline: 14-Aug-13
Registration Deadline: 21-Aug-13


The conference will center on new approaches to drug discovery in an industry where the landscape is changing rapidly. With large pharma reducing investment in internal early stage research, drug pipelines will increasingly be filled by alternative sources. These players include: government, academic labs, non-profits, biotech companies, and pharmaceutical “open innovation” models. The conference will also provide examples of successful strategies for advancing new drug candidates in this era of distributed discovery.

The full programme is now available, please see conference website for details!

Key Sessions include:

  1. Discovery Re-Invented
  2. Novel Pharma Approaches
  3. Collaborative Drug Discovery
  4. Natural Products
  5. Structure, Modelling and Informatics
  6. Biologics and Non-traditional Therapeutics
  7. Discovery Technologies

This conference is designed to attract the following attendees: medicinal, computational, and synthetic organic chemists; structural and screening biologists; research management and entrepreneurs; industrial and academic scientists.
