Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present the 2nd Annual Drug Discovery USA Congress, taking place on the 29th & 30th October at The Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel in Boston, USA. Our Congress brings together a host of senior level experts to discuss recent developments in the industry and debate the best strategies and solutions to improve drug discovery going forward.
The drug discovery landscape is changing rapidly. With the cost of bringing a drug to market rising rapidly, researchers are seeking innovative ways to increase the efficiency of their R&D pipelines. On the first day of our Drug Discovery USA Congress our expert panel of speakers will address the current strategies for directed discovery, including the resurgence of phenotypic screening and comparing its utility with target based discovery. Our renowned speakers will explore research strategies such as repositioning existing drug products, approaches for targeting PPI and GPCRs and incorporating genomic technologies into discovery research. Day one features an exciting stream covering the latest screening and assay technologies, such as high content analysis, the latest mass spectroscopy tools and using stem and primary cells for physiologically relevant disease models.
The pharma industry is seeing an increased focus on strengthening data and knowledge management in R&D pipelines to make the most of discovery data. Researchers are seeking new techniques to manage complex early stage discovery portfolios and for library optimisation. On day two our Congress features an exciting stream dedicated to supporting innovation with informatics tools in which we will explore new data analysis and integration platforms, as well as ideas for efficient data exchange and pre-competitive collaboration. Day two will also host discussions about the latest research in the discovery chemistry field, with exciting case studies covering protein-protein interaction, water mediated binding, computational tools for drug design as well as fragment based drug design.
