Advances in Drug Discovery and Development

Inaugural Virtual Symposium: September 24

Register for our free online event: Advances in Drug Discovery and Development.

On September 24, 2014, a world-class group of scientists from biotech, pharma and academia will present the latest research findings and new technologies that are driving the design, discovery and development of new drugs ? from small molecules and monoclonals to RNA therapeutics and gene-editing technologies.

We invite you to be a part of the inaugural C&EN virtual symposium and join a large anticipated audience of thousands of scientists eager to hear the latest science and trends in drug design and development. If you can?t make the live lectures, all presentations will be archived and available on demand for three months.

PROGRAM

Keynote and track speakers have driven R&D inside leading commercial and academic institutions, including Amgen, Biogen-Idec, Novartis, Columbia University, and Harvard/MIT. Hear what they have to say about the current state and future prospects of drug discovery, including:
* Next-gen medicines
* New gene targeting technologies
* Genomic applications
* Business strategies
* Informatics in the R&D environment

REGISTRATION

Register now for free, then log in on September 24 to visit the virtual conference and trade show. It's like being there but without the cost or hassle of travel.
* Participate in panel discussions and Q&A sessions
* "Walk the floor" in our virtual exhibition hall
* Live-chat with peers and vendors
* Download valuable resources
* Re-watch your favorite talks

The C&EN virtual symposium provides a perfect blend of interactivity and convenience. You can build your personal agenda ahead of time; if you are unable to hear a talk live, you can access recordings on demand for up to three months.
