SMi are proud to present the 14th annual conference, Advances and Progress in Drug Design, taking place on 16th & 17th February 2015 in Central London.

Join us as we ask questions such as:

1. What are the key challenges in biotherapeutics discovery?
2. How have computational and predictive tools matured for the application of drug discovery? Are there novel ways to inhibit kinase targets?
3. How can we successfully apply ligand-based and structure based computational approaches for the 4. rational design of novel GPCR antagonists?
5. What are the best approaches in building a robust technology pipeline for robust fragment based drug discovery?

Hear case study driven presentations from an array of market leaders such as the University of Cambridge, Janssen, MedImmune, Sanofi and Novartis, discussing computational approaches, structure based drug design, pharmacokinetics, polypharmacology, drug metabolism and fragment based drug design, PLUS MUCH MORE!
