SCI is pleased to announce this year’s event from partner organisation the United Kingdom Automated Synthesis Forum (UKASF), on 11-12 November 2015.
Sygnature Discovery will host the next meeting of the UK Automated Synthesis Forum (UKASF) 2015 at BioCity Nottingham from 11 - 12 Nov 2015. The aims of the symposium are to share best practice and to review new technologies to facilitate innovation in the small and large scale chemical environment. The UKASF has been operating for the past 19 years and attracts representation from most major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, as well as an increasing number of academic institutions. In addition, a number of equipment suppliers will be exhibiting at the event.
The UKASF was initially formed in 1996 by Dr. Nick Hird, formerly of SmithKline Beecham, during the Combinatorial Chemistry era within the pharmaceutical industry. The group was set up to discuss the issues that were being encountered at that time using the automated equipment primarily for solid phase and array synthesis. The meeting has evolved over the years to include analytical equipment, new and emerging technologies including green chemistry. Attendees now include both academics and industrialists.

The UKASF committee is comprised of both industrial and academic chemists all of whom have a strong interest in new technologies.
