The symposium aims to follow the journey from drug discovery to therapeutic development, providing an overview of our strengths and capabilities in novel and repurposed drug discovery, as well as celebrating achievements and recognising successful researchers in the field from across the university and at all career stages. We hope that by gathering drug discovery experts from UCL, partner hospitals, Industry, Funders and wider, we can facilitate meaningful multidisciplinary translational opportunities and establish innovative partnerships to lead the future of therapeutic drug discovery at UCL.
