Industry leaders from around the world join together and discuss the advancements, challenges and successes of discovery and developing new medicines during this free, two-day event.

Topics discussed included:

  • GPCR Drug Discovery
  • Biomarkers in Early Stage Drug Development
  • Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine
  • Emerging Trends
