About the Event:

This symposium is designed to facilitate collaborations between the CADD Center at the School of Pharmacy and researchers at UMB, throughout the University System of Maryland, and beyond. The symposium is appropriate for all scientists interested in the field of drug design involving both small molecules and protein-based drugs, including graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers and educators from academia, government, and industry. A collection of local and external speakers, including computational chemists and experimentalists, will present recent developments in drug design and development, as well as emerging areas of biology that may represent future drug discovery targets.

The symposium is free to attend, but registration is required. Registration is now closed.

Space is also available for attendees to present posters. Poster submission may be completed while registering for the meeting. Attendees may also submit a poster after registering or submit a second poster by visiting this webpage.
