Drug Discovery 2019 – Looking Back To The Future
Now in its 13th year, ELRIG’s flagship conference Drug Discovery 2019 will take place at ACC in Liverpool. ELRIG SiLA will be hosting a workshop alongside the main conference (SiLA ELRIG 6nov2019 workshop programme).
This year’s focus, ‘A Look Back to the Future’ is planned to include plenary introductions assessing how we got to where we are now and setting the challenges for discovering the drugs of the future. These will be followed by cutting edge talks and examples of new directions in drug discovery.
Our scientific programme will feature over 40 world-class speakers with 6 main session tracks. In partnership with key academic and charitable groups, we will also run joint disease and biology-oriented tracks focusing on the basic sciences that underpin successful drug discovery.
The tracks for Drug Discovery 2019 cover the following key areas:
- Cellular Models of Disease
- Chemical biology – re-defining target tractability and therapeutic class
- Big Data and Artificial Intelligence
- Targeting Ion Channels for Drug Discovery hosted by the British Pharmacological Society
- Molecular and Cellular Imaging
- Biomarkers Strategies in Drug Discovery
- Hit Finding Strategies
- Oncology in Drug Discovery hosted by Cancer Research UK
Drug Discovery has become the largest meeting of life sciences industry professionals in the UK. This 2-day event will bring together more than 1200 delegates and over 100 exhibiting companies from around the world who will highlight the latest ground-breaking research, discuss cutting-edge advances in the application of laboratory technology to understand disease biology and to identify novel chemical and biological candidate drugs.
To maximize the interaction between delegates and exhibitors/sponsors, our programme includes scientific poster sessions, coffee/tea and lunch breaks that are located within the vendor exhibition area and a drinks/networking reception on the first day. The meeting is free-of-charge to all delegates and include complimentary refreshments and lunch.
