Kinase Drug Discovery – Strategies for Success – A day to learn from experts

20 mars, 2023, 11:00 - 17:00

A half day dedicated to kinases in drug discovery organized by SciLifeLab DDD in collaboration with AstraZeneca.

Kinases continue to attract much attention in drug discovery. Since the first compounds were launched in 2001 the learning curve of how to tackle different challenges has been steep. At the symposium we hope to give a broad overview where the field stands today and the different approaches one can take in drug discovery when interacting with kinases.

In the late afternoon we will dive deeper into the details of data generation and data interpretation to learn and discuss different techniques that can be applied to increase the chance for success.

The meeting is believed to be valuable for researchers in the area of drug discovery like medicinal chemists, structural biologists, pharmacologists, protein scientists, toxicologists etc.

This is a hybrid event. Läs mer här.
