The fourth Drug Discovery Re-Invented Meeting brings together experts in medicinal chemistry, structure-based drug design, computational chemistry, emerging drug targets, and novel technology platforms. The meeting is extremely interactive with enthusiastic question and answer sessions following each talk. This meeting remains unique with respect to the breadth of participants and focus on new approaches to discovering drugs. With large pharma reducing investment in internal early stage research, drug pipelines will increasingly be filled by alternative sources. These players include: government, academic labs, non-profits, biotech companies, and pharmaceutical “open innovation” models.
We have 3 x $1,000 grants available to students, post-docs and young faculty (first three years after start of independence), available on a first-come, first-serve basis. To apply please email your CV and abstract to Emily Bicknell. Please note that successful applicants will be required to give a short talk or poster presentation.
Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity for students! Register an academic at the earlybird rate of $1,822 and bring a student for only $850. Unfortunately, Postdocs are not eligible for this offer. Both registration packages include; accommodation for the 21, 22, 23 February 2019 (on a shared basis for students) and a 24hour all-inclusive food and beverage package for the conference period. Academic registrations must be completed by 17th December 2018. Once registered, please contact Emily Bicknell to obtain a special registration link for your student.
