New York City Drug Discovery Conference: An Educational Course on Translating Research into Drugs

Date: February 12, 2016

Location: Apella, Event Space at Alexandria Center in New York City

We are hosting our first ever New York City Drug Discovery Conference: An Educational Course on Translating Research into Drugs. This didactic conference will educate scientists on the processes of translating basic research into novel therapies and will leave participants with a strong knowledge base and relevant resources to address the associated barriers and challenges in developing a drug. Holding this meeting in NYC will help to foster the city’s growing biotechnology hub, educate academic scientists, and stimulate new partnerships. (The conference is appropriate for multiple disciplines and doesn’t focus on neurodegenerative diseases.)

This conference is based on the ADDF’s annual Drug Discovery for Neurodegeneration Conference, which was established in 2007 to: (1) Train a cadre of interdisciplinary scientists in the principles of drug discovery; (2) Provide a platform to exchange ideas, knowledge and resources about drug discovery; (3) Stimulate preclinical research in the discovery and testing of novel compounds aimed at prevention and treatment; and (4) Build public-private partnerships that will accelerate drug discovery.

10th Annual Drug Discovery for Neurodegeneration Conference

Date: March 6-8, 2016

Location: Miami Beach Resort, Miami Beach, FL

Designed as a comprehensive course, this didactic conference will educate scientists on the processes of translating basic research into novel therapies and will leave participants with a strong knowledge base and relevant resources to address the associated barriers and challenges in developing a drug. The programs will also highlight case studies of small molecule and biologics programs at different stages of development aimed at tackling challenging CNS targets relevant to NDD. The program will include sessions for networking, partnering/mentoring, and posters presented by young investigators. For complete program and registration information, please visit our Conference Website.

 

Young Investigator Scholarships Available

The ADDF presents thirty ADDF Young Investigator Scholarships. Each scholarship provides a single registration to attend the conference, an opportunity to present a poster at the conference, and your name recognition in the program and on the conference website.

 

Additional spots are now available, so apply today. Deadline January 22, 2016

1st European Drug Discovery for Neurodegeneration Conference

Date: May 15-17, 2016

Location: The Danubius Health Spa Resort, Budapest, Hungary

We are hosting our first European conference on Drug Discovery for Neurodegeneration: An Educational Course on Translating Research into Drugs which is based on the ADDF’s annual US-based Drug Discovery for Neurodegeneration conference, which was established in 2007 to meet the following objectives: (1) Train a cadre of interdisciplinary scientists in the principles of drug discovery for neurodegenerative disease (NDD); (2) Provide a platform to exchange ideas, knowledge and resources about drug discovery for NDD; (3) Stimulate preclinical research in the discovery and testing of novel compounds aimed at the prevention and treatment of NDD; and (4) Build public-private partnerships that will accelerate drug discovery for NDD. This didactic conference will educate scientists on the processes of translating basic research into novel therapies and will leave participants with a strong knowledge base and relevant resources to address the associated barriers and challenges in developing a drug. The program will also highlight case studies of small molecule and biologics programs at different stages of development aimed at tackling challenging CNS targets relevant to NDD.
