Despite the rapid pace of scientific advances that garner a better understanding of a myriad of diseases on their molecular level, modern drug discovery is a long, complex process. While on the one side, new medicines offer more manageable side effects, fewer hospitalizations, and increased productivity, each new drug is up against the scientific, technical, and regulatory challenges related to drug development
As to be expected, the course of action for researching and developing new medicines is growing in difficulty and length. It can take anywhere from 10 or more years for a drug to reach the marketplace, toting a price tag of an estimated $2.6 billion. It is in this landscape that LabRoots is proud to announce its newest addition to the virtual event line up – Drug Discovery 2018!
Industry leaders from around the world will join together and discuss the advancements, challenges and successes of discovery and developing new medicines during this free, two-day event. Topics to be discussed include:
LabRoots virtual conferences allow you to participate in a global setting, with no travel or cost to you.
