European Pharma Summit 2016

Organizer: GTCbio

Start date: May 11th, 2016     End date: May 13th, 2016

We invite you to attend the European Pharma Summit 2016, which will take place on May 11-13, 2016 in Berlin, Germany. This event seeks to create a forum for colleagues across multiple disciplines, as well as from both private and public sectors, to gather and exchange ideas. Delegates from pharmaceutical organizations, biotech companies, and leading academic institutions will gather over the course of four days to listen to presentations on the hottest topics in drug discovery and network with both new and old colleagues.

The landscape for drug discovery has changed drastically over the past few years: private and public partnerships are changing how research is being done, researchers are using 3D model systems in hopes of improving clinical outcomes, and emerging target classes are changing traditional conceptions of the drug discovery process.

The Summit will feature five conferences that will cover the latest hot topics in drug discovery:

European Pharma Summit

10th Drug Design & Medicinal Chemistry
3rd 3D Models & Drug Screening
2nd Kinase Inhibitors Design & Screening
3rd GPCR Targeted Screening

A summit pass will get you access to all five conferences, or you can register for a two-day pass to attend either the first or second half of the Summit.
