About Synthesis in Drug Discovery and Development

Synthesis in Drug Discovery and Development

Synthesis is at the heart of drug discovery and development. The industry has increasingly demanded higher quality clinical candidates and has sought to exploit less druggable biological targets. Densely functionalised small molecules with a high degree of synthetic complexity are often the result of these demands. Successful programmes therefore require the application of innovative synthesis in all stages of discovery and development. The medicinal chemist’s toolbox is also enhanced by the introduction of novel bioisosteres, often made available only through the application of new synthetic methods. This symposium aims to celebrate the crucial role of synthesis in the success of drug discovery and development.

Main themes:
Innovative synthesis facilitating candidate discovery
Novel bioisosteres and methodology applicable to drug discovery
Overcoming challenges of scale-up and process scale chemistry

Who should attend:
Chemists from industry and academia, including synthetic, medicinal and process chemists.
