Drug Discovery India 2014

Drug Discovery India 2014

After the highly successful and informative conference Drug Discovery India 2013, this will be the 2nd Annual International Conference and Exhibition focusing on Open Source Drug Discovery (OSDD), Medicinal Chemistry, Natural Products Chemistry, Chemical Biology, Molecular Modeling, Novel Approaches, Techniques and Technologies for Drug Design and Discovery. Use of Interdisciplinary Approaches for optimizing the discovery and development of new molecular entities, collaborative research amongst interdisciplinary academic/research centers, government agencies and pharmaceutical industry will also be on agenda. The event will run as two parallel tracks on two days. For details of the sessions and topics, please see the agenda.

With Dr Rathnam Chuguturu, Founder & CEO, iDDPartners, USA, as Conference Chair, planned open panel discussions and break-out sessions on key thematic areas are sure to energize the participants in defining the drug discovery landscape, especially in the Indian context, and offer ways and means to de-risk the patent cliff experienced by the pharmaceutical industry in recent years.

The conference will be co-located with Drug Metabolism & Discovery ADMET and Indian Lab Automation meetings. Registered delegates will have unrestricted access to all co-located meetings ensuring a comprehensive learning and sharing experience as well as being financially beneficial for attendees. Further, the oral & poster presentations at the conference will be published as full papers in the form of conference proceedings as special online issue of Current Research in Drug Discovery (ISSN 2333-3243). For details, please click on Publication Details..

Running alongside the Drug Discovery India 2014 conference will be an Exhibition covering the latest technological advances and associated services within these fields. We look forward to welcoming you at the Drug Discovery India 2014 Conference and Exhibition and hope that the two days will be both informative and enjoyable.
