This one-day symposium on Tuesday 15 May 2018, organised by SCI’s Fine Chemicals group and the Academic Drug Discovery Consortium (ADDC), seeks to inform and create a dynamic environment for discussion around this important topic. In this ever-evolving area, it is critical to understand the current design and selection methods of compound screening libraries, along with the range of available business models for library acquisition and enhancement. The conference will be especially useful to chemists involved in library design and acquisition – along with those involved in hit and lead generation, primarily in drug discovery and agrochemistry. Meet Dietmar Wolf in Boston and listen to his lecture on the topic “Novel Natural Product-Based Macrocyclic Platform: MacroEvoLution”!
