Accelerating Screening and Discovery of Potent Covalent Inhibitors and Degraders with Improved Triaging, Selectivity and Safety for Targeting Hard-to-Drug Targets
The field of targeted covalent therapeutics is seeing a surge of activity, with both new and established companies investing heavily in the space. The inaugural Covalent Drug Discovery Summit has been built alongside industry experts to provide a dedicated forum to tackle associated challenges and advance covalent therapeutics; previously only afforded a small feature in larger 'small molecule' conferences.
As the very first meeting solely focused on covalent therapeutics, the 18+ speaker faculty boasts leaders from large pharma, new biotech and academia. This is the summit to meet 80+ covalency experts gathering to solve target selectivity, hit screening, lead optimization, and covalent warhead design to carve out covalency's niche for targeting the "undruggable" proteome.
Time: 7:30 AM - 5:00 PM
