The role of a medicinal chemist is changing in industry today. There has never been more pressure to produce potent and safe compounds for advancement faster and more efficiently. Some of the challenges in this field stem from chemistry, supply and technology issues but also increasingly from working with, and interpreting knowledge coming from groups outside of chemistry including biology, computer-aided design, metabolism and pharmacokinetics, legal and regulatory affairs, and at times process research. Meeting the challenges of creating compounds that are both potent and safe in parallel with higher speed and lower budgets, working with outside vendors, while communicating with internal groups will be the focus of this event. This conference will identify the top ten challenges
that medicinal chemists are facing in industry today and bring forth higher level chemists and bench chemists alike to present solutions and case studies to address these challenges. Each session will close with a Chemistry Revealed Case Study - a recent success story in the field with footnotes on challenges overcome.
