SyncD³ - Where drug discovery & development meet

Please join us at our virtual event: SyncD3Where drug discovery and development meet
 
This first of its kind online scientific conference brings the world of drug discovery and development to your desk or lab bench.  You are free to choose the talks most relevant to your research to customize a conference experience that meets your needs. 

Cutting edge topics in the sessions will cover the use of the following as tools for drug discovery/development: 

  • High Content Screening,
  • 3D Models/Organoids,
  • Stem Cells 

Where these areas intersect and impact the future of the industry will be debated during live panel discussions with our presenters and audience.
 
Find out tips and tricks to successfully land your next job from experienced scientific industry recruiters. Learn the most common mistakes and best practices for starting your own business from an entrepreneurial expert.  These two talks wrap up what is an exciting, educational, interactive program.
 
There are several opportunities for scientific collaboration during the virtual event.  You are invited to submit your research abstract to our review committee for potential posting to our virtual poster and publication portal.  Attendees are also encouraged to participate in our live, online chat platform.  Learn more about the products offered by Thermo Fisher Scientific that accelerate your drug discovery and development research and chat with our sales team in the resource center.
