Synthetic Chemistry Aspects of Drug Discovery and Early Development Projects

The drug discovery process is complex and scientists collaborate across a variety of different disciplines and areas of expertise to go from identification and validation of a new target, to an approved and marketed small molecule therapeutic agent.

Chemistry is fundamental to the drug discovery process with discovery chemists at the front end of the process and development chemists in the latter stages.

This webinar will provide an understanding of the specific skills that are required of the chemist to successfully navigate the earlier and latter stages of the drug discovery process, and how the two disciplines have apparent differences.

Date & time
Tuesday 25 April 2023 (this has changed from the original date of Tuesday 7 March 2023)

10:00 to 10:45 (GMT)
16:00 to 16:45hrs (GMT)

The webinar is scheduled for 45 minutes and will include a Q&A session at the end.

About the presenter

James brings extensive experience from across multiple therapeutic areas in drug discovery, having previously held senior positions at SAFC Pharma, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals and KemFine Oy.

Prior to joining Charnwood Molecular, James was Senior Medicinal Chemist at the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, where he worked on various target classes, including kinases and epigenetic targets. James has led numerous projects from hit identification right through to lead optimization and beyond and has an in-depth knowledge of modern drug discovery, with an impressive publication record to evidence this.
