Symposium A3
Systems approaches in drug discovery & design

Tuesday 23 May 2017
Stockholmsmässan : K1

Introduction words to this session

Progress in molecular and systems yields unprecedented opportunities for drug discovery and design. To this end novel technologies are introduced in drug development research. This session focuses especially on novel chemistry approaches in drug design.
