This joint meeting with the Biochemical Society and Society Medicines Research will focus on current trends of drug discovery and brings together academic and industry-based scientists from various disciplines to discuss some of the modern challenges encountered in drug discovery as well as potential solutions to tackle them. Current trends in drug discovery provides a rare opportunity for scientists to hear about drug discovery disciplines outside of their own experience and to get a broader understanding of where their work fits in drug discovery.
