This 2-day event will bring together more than 1200 delegates and over 100 exhibiting companies from around the world who will highlight the latest ground-breaking research, discuss cutting-edge advances in the application of laboratory technology to understand disease biology and to identify novel chemical and biological candidate drugs.

The theme of this year's conference is drug discovery for small & large molecules and will focus on the application of laboratory technology to understand disease biology and to identify novel chemical and biological candidate drugs. Our scientific programme will feature over 50 world-class speakers in 8 main session tracks, each highlighting the latest scientific breakthroughs and new approaches in drug discovery research across pharma, biotech, academia and the vendor community. The scientific tracks are:

  • Chemistry Innovations
  • Innovations in cellular HTS and compound profiling

Considerations for Choosing the Right Wearable Drug Delivery System

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

For patients with chronic conditions, the use of injectable biologic therapies is on the rise. Biologics, while providing considerable therapeutic benefit, can also present several challenges for both drug manufacturers and patients. In particular, many biologics are highly viscous and others require large doses to be injected slowly over time. This can make it difficult to deliver a consistent dose every time, potentially impacting medication adherence.
