Due to high cost, for decades the therapeutics discovery has been dominated by Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical companies. As the technologies became more affordable, and universities invested in graduating talented masters and Ph.Ds. in different disciplines of drug discovery, more academicians started considering projects on therapeutic discovery and development.
The conference is intended for Pre-clinical and clinical researchers in: Academia, the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industry, contract research organizations, API manufacturers domestic and international regulatory agencies in positions to affect the science and regulation of drug discovery and development, Scientists and researchers who wish to stay abreast on the national and international initiatives affecting the development of safe and effective pharmaceutical drug products.
The conference will be accredited with CME hours
