Venue: SCI, London, UK
Date: Thursday 27 September 2018

The SCI Young Chemists' Panel is pleased to present What Medicinal Chemists Need to Know About Biology II. This one-day symposium is the second in a series that aims to bridge the gap between medicinal chemistry and biology, with no requirement for previous attendance.

The events in this series will aid chemists in understanding the opportunities and challenges of the biological aspects of pharmaceutical research. Experienced speakers from leading pharmaceutical companies will deliver exciting and informative lectures with emphasis on Q&A. This year’s symposium will also feature case studies from different disease areas including oncology and diseases of the central nervous system. 

Last year, the first instalment of the series covered topics such as the druggable genome, in vitro assays and pharmacological screening methods. The 2018 edition will focus on in vivo aspects of biological research, encompassing topics such as animal disease models, target identification, phenotypic screening, PET imaging and biomarkers. Participants will be provided with a booklet containing the material presented.

Confirmed speakers for 2018 include;

  • Alex Vugler, UCB
  • Peter Joyce, Grey Wolf Therapeutics
  • Chris Morrow, AstraZeneca

This event will conclude with a wine reception and the opportunity to network with industry experts in the pharmaceutical field. There is still time to catch the early bird fees, by booking before Tuesday 4 September 2018.

This is a fantastic opportunity for career development, networking and discussion of the latest advances in the pharmaceutical industry. SCI members attending this meeting can claim CPD points.
