Kinase 2020: 9th RSC / SCI symposium on kinase inhibitor design

1 June 2020 09:00 - 2 June 2020 17:00, London, United Kingdom

With more than 49 FDA-approved small molecules, the field of kinase inhibition continues to attract significant investment from the drug discovery and development community. The 9th RSC/SCI symposium on kinases will encompass plenary lectures on emergent topics and case studies of ongoing programmes as well as successful past programmes. A range of topics including new screening approaches, brain penetrant kinase inhibitors, induced protein degradation, allosteric inhibitors and kinase inhibition for immuno-oncology will be covered, along with views and perspectives on the future of kinase inhibitor research.

Programme Themes
This event will bring together industrial and academic experts representing many of the leading institutions in kinase drug discovery, to discuss a selection of new and emerging topics within the fields of kinase therapeutics for oncology and non-oncology therapies, and foster discussions within the wider industry through networking events such as poster sessions and industrial exhibitions.

Who should attend?
This event is aimed at all scientists interested in furthering their knowledge of kinases. It will also have wider appeal to members of the drug discovery community eager to understand how enzyme inhibitor programmes are approached and executed across the pharmaceutical industry. 

Call for Papers
Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentation. Posters will be displayed throughout the meeting, and a dedicated poster session. There will also be an option for a flash oral presentation (two minutes, single slide).  Closing dates for submissions are 18th December (oral) and 17th April (poster).

Registration, Fees and Bursaries
Registration will open in late summer/early autumn. Discounted rates will be available for RSC and SCI student members, and some student bursaries will also be available (closing date 15th April).

There will be a relevant trade exhibition, and full details of the exhibition offering may be found on the event website.  Delegate pack inserts may be booked at £250 - no more than two sheets of A4 fixed together. 

Centrally located adjacent to King’s Cross St Pancras railway station, the Institute is readily accessible by public transport.

A number of bedrooms have been held (via InCorporate Venues) at the Travelodge Kings Cross Royal Scot and the Travelodge Central Euston.  Rooms are available to book online, and the release date is 3rd April.
