We are proud to present our 3rd Annual Drug Discovery Chemistry conference on the 18th-19th March 2019 in London.

The drug discovery field is undergoing dramatic change. There is currently a reduced output of new medicines due to challenges in R&D, pricing pressures and regulations. While these challenges are slowing progress, demand for new, more effective medicines are steadily growing. However, new technologies have allowed for the drug discovery process to overall become more streamlined and cost-efficient, and scientific advances have made the identification of novel drug targets, modalities, and therapeutic areas to be recognised. This presents a new opportunity for the development of novel medicines and technologies within the pharmaceutical market.

Our 3rd annual Drug Discovery Chemistry conference aims to discuss emerging techniques, potential drug targets, and advances in the drug discovery field that are driving the pharmaceutical industry into a new era of medicines and therapeutics. This conference aims to provide insight into how these developments can be best utilised in the commercial setting.

Join us in London, March 2019, as we discuss the latest developments in the field of Drug Discovery Chemistry. Network with industry experts, gain insight into the latest technological developments and how these are being utilised within the pharmaceutical industry, discuss the potential of novel drug modalities, the use of AI in drug discovery and the latest medicinal chemistry techniques and how these can be brought into the commercial market.
