3rd Synthesis in Drug Discovery and Development

Date: May 23, 2023 - May 24, 2023

3rd Synthesis in Drug Discovery and Development

The 3rd Synthesis in Drug Discovery and Development symposium is an accessible online event taking place on 23rd – 24th May 2023.

This RSC specialist event is introduced as:

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 aimed to celebrate the crucial role of synthesis in the success of drug discovery and development.
