Drug DiscoveryShowcasing top chemical biology research.

Date: 31 Jul 2015 – 0900 to 1900
Venue: Andrew Wiles Building, Woodstock Road, Oxford
Audience: Senior scientists and managers from pharmaceutical and biotechnological organisations. Principal investigators and senior researchers from Oxford.

Each session features top-class science presentations from a broad range of Oxford’s biomedical and physical science departments, with speakers from industry giving their perspective throughout the day. This sets the stage for a round-table discussion between opinion leaders from across Oxford and industry. The conversation will focus on how we can best work together to translate ideas into new medicines.

The symposium will bring together 200 delegates including Oxford researchers, industry colleagues and technology transfer professionals. In doing so, it will provide the ideal forum for discussion and lead to lasting collaborative relationships.

Networking breaks and poster sessions will allow discussion to continue outside of the lecture theatre. The day will finish with a wine reception in the common room of the Andrew Wiles building, which provides a beautiful view of the 18th century Radcliffe Observatory.
