SCI's Young Chemists' Panel
Takeda, Cambridge, UK
This event is no longer available for registration.
This one day event will be held at the heart of the prestigious Cambridge Science Park and will bring together eight speakers from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as academia, to focus on the challenges and breakthroughs in drug discovery for disorders of the central nervous system. The event has been tailored to deliver an overview of the medicinal chemistry requirements of centrally-acting drugs and an introduction to hot CNS drug targets.
Several in-depth medicinal chemistry case studies will be presented on the discovery of drug hits, leads and clinical candidates for the treatment of CNS disorders which will include Parkinson’s disease, glioblastoma, Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia. Special consideration will be given to designing molecules with brain penetration and applying contemporary approaches to hit generation and lead optimisation, such as fragment screening and structure-based drug design.
The meeting is aimed at scientists in the industrial and academic fields with a background in medicinal chemistry or drug discovery. It is ideally suited to those studying for a postgraduate degree or working in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry. This symposium will engage both those who are familiar with medicinal chemistry and drug discovery, and those who are new to the area but interested in learning more.
