C&EN is hosting an Advanced Drug Discovery and Development Virtual Symposium on Sept 24, 2014 from 8 AM to 7 PM. The agenda isn’t fully defined yet but the speaker list looks very good. Topics include:
• Next-gen medicines
• New gene targeting technologies
• Genomic applications
• Business strategies
• Informatics in the R&D environment
I’ve attended in a couple of virtual symposiums and they are a really convenient way to attend a conference whenh time or budget does not permit travel. If you have not attended a virtual conference, arrive early and learn the interface, download the presentation, review the agenda, find the talks that interest you, introduce yourself in the chat room, and chat until the talks start.
