4th SCI / RSC Symposium on Anti-Infectives Drug Discovery

13 May 2024 09:15 - 14 May 2024 15:30, London, United Kingdom

With the ever-growing prevalence of drug-resistant pathogens, it has never been more important that we refresh the drug pipeline with new antimicrobials that act on new targets or exhibit novel modes of action. The recent COVID pandemic has served to highlight the importance of developing effective treatments for infection, driving the recent resurgence in anti-infectives drug discovery and development of innovative technologies and approaches for combating infection through more effective detection and diagnosis methods.


This two-day symposium will examine the latest advances in anti-infectives drug discovery from a medicinal chemist’s perspective, focusing on the particular challenges associated with developing anti-infectives whilst also showcasing emerging strategies for tackling infection.
