Kinase 2021: 9th RSC / SCI symposium on kinase inhibitor design

5 July 2021 09:00 - 6 July 2021 17:00, London, United Kingdom

NEW DATE:  This event was formerly planned for1st-2nd June 2020

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 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 date for submission is 21st May 2021.
