We are proud to present our 2nd annual conference on Drug Discovery, taking place on 21st-22nd of March 2018 in Central London.

This conference will bring together key opinion leaders and senior industry experts to discuss the latest developments in drug discovery strategies. As the industry is experiencing radical changes in approaches to the discovery of new compounds, it is vital to look beyond to the next generation of enabling tools and technologies. This will assist rational, fast and successful drug discovery.

Drug Discovery 2018 provides an unprecedented opportunity to gain insight into the use of Artificial Intelligence in in silico drug discovery, as well as discussing 3D structure based-discovery, medicinal and discovery chemistry, translational medicine and the use of CRISPR cas-9 gene editing techniques and PROTAC's.

Benefits of Attending

  • Discover how leading pharmaceutical companies are incorporating Artificial Intelligence into their in silico drug discovery process!
  • Gain insight into how CRISPR cas9 and PROTACs are being utilised to discover new drugs.
  • Learn about the latest methods of predicting drug kinetics and toxicity early on in the pre-clinical process to speed up the drug discovery process and increase the potential success of newly discovered drugs.
