Welcome to World Congress on Drug Discovery & Development-2016

After the grand success of Global Cancer Summit-2015, BioGenesis Health Cluster is pleased to announce the “World Congress on Drug Discovery & Development-2016”, which is scheduled on 23rd, 24th & 25th November 2016 at J.N.TATA Auditorium, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

The Drug Discovery & Development-2016 conference brings together a host of senior level experts to discuss recent developments in the industry and debate the best strategies and solutions to improve drug discovery going forward. The conference will host more than 200world-class speakers from academia and industry who will discuss recent advances in basic and translational aspects of drug discovery. This conference will highlight the latest scientific breakthroughs, explore innovative technologies and approaches that can be used to overcome drug development challenges, and bring together industry leaders who will discuss future opportunities for novel therapeutic discovery.

The scientific program will feature live workshops, interactive education sessions, B2B meetings, round-table discussions apart from the conventional plenary sessions, featured symposia, break out sessions and oral presentation sessions for abstracts and challenging cases.

Welcome Message from Co-chairman

Dr.Richard Hopkinson,

University of Oxford

Dear Colleagues,

Interactive Streams of the Conference:

  • Target Based Discovery
  • Screening & Assays: Enabling Technologies
  • Discovery Chemistry & Drug Design
  • Supporting Innovation: Translational Approaches & Informatics Tools

Our Congress brings together a host of senior levelexperts to discuss recent developments in the industryand debate the best strategies and solutions toimprove drug discovery going forward. The drug discovery landscape is changing rapidly. Withthe cost of bringing a drug to market rising, researchers are seeking innovative ways to increasethe efficiency of their R&D pipelines. On the first day ofour Drug Discovery INDIA Congress our expert panel ofspeakers will address the current strategies fordirected discovery, including the resurgence ofphenotypic screening and comparing its utility withtarget based discovery.
Our renowned speakers will explore novel peptidedrug discovery, strategies for target selection and incorporating genomic technologies into discoveryresearch.

BioGenesis Health Cluster

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the World Congress on Drug Discovery and Development to be held from the 23rd, 24th & 25th November 2016 at J.N.TATA Auditorium, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, Karnataka.

The current pharmaceutical industry business model is both economically unsustainable and operationally incapable of acting quickly enough to produce the types of innovative treatments demanded by global markets. In order to make the most of these future growth opportunities, the industry must fundamentally change the way it operates. Most Big Pharma companies have traditionally done everything from research and development (R&D) through to commercialization themselves. However, by 2020 this model will no longer work for many organizations. If they are to prosper, they will need to improve their R&D productivity, reduce their costs, tap the potential of the emerging economies and switch from selling medicines to managing outcomes.

Drug discovery represents the first step in the creation of new drugs, and takes place in academic institutions, biotech companies, and large pharmaceutical corporations. Until recently, these sectors have each operated independently with little collaboration between those at the forefront of discovery research and those with experience in developing drugs. With the rise of translational research these relationships are shifting and new hubs are emerging, as key players seek to pool the expertise necessary to generate new therapies by linking laboratory discoveries directly to unmet clinical needs. BioGenesis Health Cluster aims at creating an international platform to discuss modern trends and increasing adoption of translational research, which can lead to novel integrated discovery nexuses that may change the landscape of drug discovery.

The conference aims to provide many interesting perspectives on how science and technology of drug discovery & development are changing rapidly, thereby providing new opportunities and challenges to scientists and medical doctors.

We hope the program of plenary lectures, symposia and workshops, oral presentations and posters will be scientifically stimulating and lead to new collaborations and research opportunities. We welcome our many international guests and hope you enjoy the meeting and your visit to Bengaluru.
