Recommended Conferences for drug discovery

drug discovery


As per available reports about 8 through its relevant journals, 115 Conferences, 121 workshops, are presently dedicated exclusively to Drug discovery and about 60 articles are being published on Drug discovery.

Drug discovery is the process through which potential new medicines are identified. It involves a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance:

Drug discovery is the process by which new candidate medications are discovered. Historically, drugs were discovered through identifying the active ingredient from traditional remedies or by serendipitous discovery. Since sequencing of the human genome which allowed rapid cloning and synthesis of large quantities of purified proteins, it has become common practice to use high throughput screening of large compounds libraries against isolated biological targets which are hypothesized to be disease modifying in a process known as reverse pharmacology. Hits from these screens are then tested in cells and then in animals for efficacy.

Drug discovery is the process by which new candidate medications are discovered. It is the process through which potential new medicines are identified. It involves a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology. Drug discovery involves the identification of screening hits, medicinal chemistry and optimization of those hits to increase the affinity, selectivity (to reduce the potential of side effects), efficacy/potency, metabolic stability (to increase the half-life), and oral bioavailability. Once a compound that fulfills all of these requirements has been identified, it will begin the process of drug development prior to clinical trials. One or more of these steps may, but not necessarily, involve computer-aided drug design.
Drug discovery is done by pharmaceutical companies, with research assistance from universities. The "final product" of drug discovery is a patent on the potential drug. The drug requires very expensive Phase I, II and III clinical trials, and most of them fail. Small companies have a critical role, often then selling the rights to larger companies that have the resources to run the clinical trials. Drug discovery is the process by which drugs are designed through which potential new medicines are identified. Where It involves a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry and pharmacology. This can be done either by identifying the active ingredient from traditional remedies or by serendipitous discovery. The process of drug discovery will take many steps of process. Where it involves in identification of candidates, synthesis, characterization, screening, and assays for therapeutic efficacy.
 

Market Analysis:

The global market for drug discovery technologies and products reached $38.4 billion in 2011. It is expected to expand to $41.4 billion in 2012 and to $79.0 billion in 2017, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.8% between 2012 and 2017.
