Cambridge-MIT Institute Next Generation Drug Discovery: Workshop

A half-day workshop (2 p.m. - 5.45 p.m.) will take place on Thursday, 20 May 2004 at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Wilberforce Road, CB3 0WA.

CMI Next Generation Drug Discovery was set up to address urgent and severe bottlenecks in therapeutics discovery and development. We invite you to join us at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences for our second annual academic workshop. The day is intended to provide you with an insight into the latest reseach in systems biology. A wide range of leading academics and scientists will attend this seminar and your participation in proceedings will be welcome.

Professors Doug Lauffenberger, Linda Griffith, Simon Tavaré, and Bertie Gottgens will lead the day and chair the sessions. Joining them will be an impressive line-up of experts such as John Todd and Harvey Lodish. Together with delegates, they will explore the following issues:

Systems approaches to high-throughput drug development
Systems approaches to drug discovery for complex diseases
Engaging the wider academic community
