The BMCS Mastering MedChem V

13 March 2019 09:15-17:45, Windlesham, United Kingdom


Introduction
Synopsis
Mastering Medicinal Chemistry V is the latest in an ongoing series of conferences intended to provide expert advice and guidance to new practitioners in the field of drug discovery.  It has been said that "there are two types of drug discovery programmes: those that hit serious problems and those that are going to hit serious problems".   
Anticipating and preparing for such problems thus accelerates the delivery of new medicines: this event will feature presentations from experienced 'drug-hunters' in both industry and academia, who will talk about the challenges faced in modern drug discovery, and will share the good practices common to all successful medicinal chemists.

• Live webcast for RSC-BMCS members only
