All scientists working in drug discovery need tools and techniques for handling chemical information. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to try out a range of software packages for themselves with expert tuition in different aspects of pre-clinical drug discovery. Attendees will be able to choose from sessions covering data processing and visualisation; ligand and structure-based design, or ADMET prediction run by the software providers. All software and training materials required for the workshop will be provided for attendees to install and run on their own laptops and use for a limited period afterwards.

Attendance is recommended for chemists working in the pharmaceutical, biotech, life sciences and agrochemicals sectors, particularly early career scientists or those working in SMEs, start-ups or academia. Financial support to cover travel and registration is available for students on application.


The full programme will be announced in due course.
