Top scientists from pharma and biotech will address how they are hitting epigenetic targets, provide updates on the newest wave of GPCRs and other membrane proteins, and discuss the latest in fragment-based drug design. Attendees will return to their organizations with fresh perspectives and new ideas to maximize productivity and increase successes in drug discovery.
-- Structures, Chemical Probes, New Biology, New Targets for Drug Discovery: Is This the Right Sequence?
Chas Bountra, Ph.D., Head, Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC); Professor, Translational Medicine; Associate Head, Medical Sciences, University of Oxford
-- Updates on New Compounds and Targets
-- Properties of Fragments
-- GPCRs and Other Membrane Proteins
-- Water in Drug Design
-- Innovative Approaches to Enable Discovery
In addition, a pre-conference dinner short course on "Structure- and Dynamics-Based Design Strategies,"
"For this year's event, we really took attendee feedback into account to give the conference a bit of a face-lift. The program will feature all new content and expanded coverage on the topics that matter most to industry researchers, and the presentations are going to give attendees actionable advice to take to their labs. I think the discussions generated here will be some of the best yet," said Samantha Lewis, Conference Producer, CHI.
The conference is once again endorsed by the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) as a sponsoring society and Bio-IT World as the official media sponsor.
Past attendees of this conference had this to say about their experience at the meeting:
"The selection and speakers and presentations strongly demonstrated the expansive breadth and impact of structure-based drug design." - - Director of Bioinformatics, ActivX Biosciences
"Some very important principles were highlighted and the best thing was that the speakers could demonstrate working solutions." -- Computational Chemist, Bayer HealthCare
"Good quality, up-to-date presentations made this a stimulating and informative conference."
