Event Name

32nd Annual ResMed: Residential School on Medicinal Chemistry and Biology in Drug Discovery

Start Date 10th Jun 2018
End Date 15th Jun 2018

ResMed is a week-long graduate level course organized to provide an accelerated program for chemists, biologists and other industrial and academic scientists who wish to broaden their knowledge of drug discovery and development.  The School's aim is to concentrate on the fundamentals that are useful in drug discovery spanning initial target validation through clinical development. The program provides ample opportunity for discussions with distinguished faculty from industry and academia.

The purpose of the School is to provide a strong background in the principles of drug discovery and development to enhance collaborative drug discovery programs. Previous attendees with backgrounds in macromolecular crystallography have found the course of great value in their research projects.
