He serves on the editorial board of ACS Medicinal Chemistry Letters and on the advisory board of Chemical & Engineering News.

    Abstract:
    In this interactive session, Derek Lowe will be taking questions from the audience in an informal discussion on his work in drug discovery, and his take on the current pharma landscape. Moderated by Lisa Jarvis, senior C&EN correspondent, this will be a must-attend session providing valuable insight into the world of chemistry and life sciences.
