Taking place for the second time on Wednesday 1 February 2017, New Approaches in Medicinal Chemistry 2017 will be another opportunity for all those involved in the areas of medicinal chemistry and drug discovery to update and extend their knowledge of cutting-edge techniques.
Organised by SCI's Young Chemists' Panel, it will be of interest for scientists from both academia and industry, and ideally suited to those studying for a postgraduate degree or working in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry.
The programme of the day will see speakers from organisations such as Astex, Cantab Anti-Infectives, Eli Lilly, GSK, Progenitor Therapeutics and The University of Leeds, tackling subjects as wide ranging as antibody recruiting molecules, novel antibacterial agents, protein degradation using small molecules, fragment approaches to modulate protein-protein interactions, cryo-electon microscopy in drug discovery, and stem cell technology.
This one day symposium will be held at one of Eli Lilly’s major research and development centres in Windlesham, aimed at introducing and reviewing a wide range of hot topics and approaches towards discovering the drugs of tomorrow. By bringing together speakers from the key global centres of excellence in drug discovery, the day has been designed to deliver what is current and of high interest to those pushing forward the frontiers of drug discovery.
Throughout the day there will be ample opportunity to network and connect with other scientists, there is going to be a poster competition that will be judged on the day, and SCI Members attending this meeting will be able to claim CPD points.
