DrugSpace Symposium Spring 2022

Social Mixer and Workshop on the 2nd Day of the Symposium

It's a small world!

The second virtual BioSolveIT DrugSpace Symposium revolves around the little gems of drug discovery: small molecules and fragments!
Experts from academia, the pharmaceutical industry, and academic institutions disclose current developments and unprecedented innovations to tackle future challenges in drug discovery. The symposium features interdisciplinary cross-talks between computational approaches, medicinal chemistry cases, crystallography, synthesis, small compound evolution, and the handling of molecular collections speedily.

Medicinal chemists, decision makers, representatives of any pharmaceutical- and medicine-related business, undergraduate and Ph.D. students, researchers, and everybody interested in future technologies and state-of-the-art drug development — you are cordially invited to participate in this virtual event. We will frame the Symposium with a virtual mixer in Gathertown so that also smaller circles can discuss, meet, and have a drink aside the presentations.

The DrugSpace Symposium takes place at 24-25th May 2022, and the registration is free-of-charge.
