Discovery Europe

Iolanda Micco, our Head of Discovery Chemistry, will be attending the Discovery Europe. Find us at booth 7!

She will present a talk: Difficult targets in small molecule drug discovery.

Abstract for the talk:

Disease relevance and druggability of novel targets rarely match. However, new drug mechanisms and modalities have challenged our current view on “undruggable targets”. We will discuss how to leverage on the right lead finding strategy to address also difficult targets with small molecules.

📅 Date: May 22 – h 13:10 

📍 Location: Basel, Switzerland
