SLAS CONFERENCE ON COMPOUND MANAGEMENT IN INDUSTRY AND ACADEMIA
With the support of the city of Dortmund

24-25 March, 2015
Dortmund, Germany
Dortmunder U, RWE Forum

Effective management of compound collections is crucial to the success of the early discovery efforts of the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology and Agri-Science industries. In addition, academic organisations are also setting up comprehensive compound management infrastructures to help realise their target validation and drug discovery goals. The SLAS Conference on Compound Management in Industry and Academia will assemble key individuals who share the aims of providing their organisations the right compound at the right time and in the best possible condition, to allow the generation of meaningful screening, pharmacological, toxicological or ADME profiling data. Drug discovery-focused scientists will be joined by specialists in Agri-Science and Biotechnology who will discuss the particular challenge of compound management in these areas.

The event will take place over 1.5 days in Dortmund, Germany in partnership with the European Lead Factory, and will offer attendees working in compound management roles, from the bench to the boardroom, the chance to discuss important developments in compound management practice with their peers in an informal setting. New technologies will be presented by innovative companies working to advance the current state of the art in compound and sample management. ELF will propose on Wednesday afternoon a symposium on Compound Libraries. SLAS will also have the opportunity to present at the ELF meeting on the 27th of March.

The conference will also feature a poster session to showcase latest discoveries.

Satellite Meeting

Logo European Lead Factory

The European Lead Factory is hosting a free-of-charge Satellite Meeting on Wednesday afternoon with a panel discussing how this unique example of public–private innovation is already achieving successes. IMI funding has allowed the European Lead Factory to devote world-class assets to explore new drug targets and ideas on synthetic methods for library generation. Such targets and library ideas are now being actively sought from European academia and SMEs. Screening is performed against a unique compound library using our resources, with no upfront costs, and can give you a Qualified Hit List of up to 50 compounds as well as the right to develop things further either alone or in collaboration.
This is a must-attend event for anyone working on drug targets to discuss key issues such as resource-sharing, publication, exclusivity (and control) of results and a lot more.
