C&EN's Virtual Symposium: Advances in Drug Discovery and Development

C&EN is delighted to present its second annual virtual symposium highlighting groundbreaking research in drug discovery, chemical synthesis, informatics and drug development.

On September 16, 2015, a renowned 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 traditional small molecules and biologics to cutting-edge gene-editing and immunological technologies. Speakers will present the latest advances in identifying promising drug targets, verifying lead compounds, and new strategies that are delivering more powerful, personalized drugs to the marketplace.

Last year, more than 7,400 scientists signed up to attend C&EN’s inaugural virtual event. We invite you to join an even larger audience this September. If you can’t make the live lectures, all presentations will be archived and available on demand for three months.

PROGRAM
This year’s keynote and event speakers are driving R&D inside leading commercial and academic institutions, including Merck, Pfizer, Genentech, Editas Medicine, BIND Therapeutics, Syros, The Scripps Research Institute, and many more. Among the many themes to be covered are:

*Organic synthesis for novel drugs
*Personalized and precision medicine
*Structure-based drug design
*Business and collaborative strategies
*Gene regulation in cancer
*Informatics in the R&D environment
*Genome editing technologies

REGISTRATION
