Innovative Approaches to Accelerating Drug Discovery and Development

San Diego


11:30am - 6:30pm

How can we accelerate successful drug discovery and development?

The success of clinical candidate development depends on several factors, important among them are generation of novel, therapeutically-relevant chemical structures, early and rapid assessment of possible efficacy of candidate structures in pre-clinical therapeutic models and rapid elimination of candidates that will ultimately prove unsuccessful. Innovative processes and techniques that facilitate optimal candidate selection is a crucial step in accelerating drug discovery and development timelines.

BioDuro invites you to a symposium on Innovative Approaches to Accelerating Drug Discovery and Development. Join us on Thursday, June 14th in San Diego for lunch, insightful presentations from industry experts, followed by a networking happy hour.

*Registration is free, but space is limited. RSVP today!
