Event Name

Boston Biotech Symposium 2014

Start Date 2nd Aug 2014
End Date 2nd Aug 2014

The use of crystallographic data and analysis for molecules in drug development development, reflecting on past achievements and future directions in molecular design and materials characterization, has served as the basis in the understanding of the structure and function of medicines.  We hope that those participating in the Boston Biotech Symposium find interesting and relevant original research to stimulate new ideas in the area of structural science in pharmaceutical materials research.
