Drug Discovery 2017

March 26, 2017 - March 28, 2017

Drug Discovery 2017 – SMi proudly presents its exclusive conference on Drug Discovery, taking place on 27th & 28th March 2017.

Registration is now live at www.drug-discovery.co.uk/biochemadda.

In recent years, the Pharma/Biotech industry has undergone radical changes which have increased are understanding of drug discovery and development, however there are still many hurdles that the industry face.

Drug Discovery 2017

The gap between a laboratory discovery and an approved drug on the market is a decade-long process of laboratory testing, evaluation in animal models and human clinical trials that can cost hundreds of millions. The conference aims to bridge the gaps in approval for drug discovery and development by discussing the latest scientific breakthroughs, exploring novel technologies and approaches that can be used to overcome drug development challenges.

The conference will bring together industry leaders who will highlight future opportunities for novel therapeutic discovery. Some of our featured speakers include
