1st May 2007 - High Throughput Medicinal Chemistry

High throughput techniques have revolutionised the drug discovery process and are widely used in medicinal chemistry to speed the development of new and higher quality drug candidates. The scientific programme of the "High Throughput Medicinal Chemistry" meeting will include presentations on computational tools, purification of small organic molecules, ADME , fragment based design and case studies from GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca and Merck Sharpe and Dohme.

Date: 1st May 2007
Location: SC1 auditorium, GlaxoSmithKline, Harlow
Application and Fees: RSC Members - 112.00, Non RSC Members - 153.00
