Event Date/Time: Oct 16, 2000
End Date/Time: Oct 17, 2000
According to a May 1999 article in Applied Clinical Trials, "IT (information technology) could save pharmaceutical manufacturers millions of dollars by enabling drug development time to be slashed by as much as 25%." To achieve these goals, how can you generate computational data to integrate biological, chemical and clinical information to optimize drug discovery? How do you manipulate and visualize gene expression, sequence, proteomic and pharmacogenomic data to enhance drug discovery? How do you mine databases for novel concepts to track information flows and recognize early knowledge trends in drug discovery? Attend CBI's Drug Discovery Informatics conference on October 16-17, 2000 in Philadelphia. Learn how to integrate, visualize and manage data to accelerate drug discovery and development from Roche Biosciences, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, SmithKline Beecham and Wyeth-Ayerst. Also, plan to attend two pre-conference workshops - Create Cellular Informatics Databases to Discover New Compounds and Seamless Knowledge Management - Models for Systems Implementation and Monitoring Across R & D Functions.
