This one-day symposium is aimed at exploring the latest approaches in drug discovery and will review the hottest topics towards discovering the drugs of tomorrow. Bringing together a wide range of industrial speakers, the day will cover a broad range of approaches and new targets within drug discovery.

Topics will cover both small molecule drug discovery as well as looking at those approaches to larger molecules such as antibody drug conjugates and bicyclic peptides. The meeting will cover a range of topics, from exploring the ways artificial intelligence and computational chemistry can impact drug discovery, to new targets for research within deubiquintinating enzymes and immune-oncology.

The meeting will be ideal for both experienced and more junior medicinal chemists in the drug discovery and medicinal chemistry fields. With a wide range of talks covering the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, both industrial and academic scientists will be interested in the event.
