Dear All,

In the middle of the global COVID-19 pandemic threat, we hope you and your loved ones are safe and doing fine.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has continued to evolve around the world, Drug Discovery-2020 organizers have been actively assessing the risk and impact on a daily basis and monitoring guidance from public health authorities. We are also monitoring the government and university restrictions on the travel ban and public gathering.

We are currently planning to host Drug Discovery-2020 as scheduled, October 05-07 in Buffalo, NY. If things should change, we will communicate with all confirmed participants. We are excited to host Drug Discovery-2020 and truly appreciate your support.

Stay Home & Stay Safe…!

Best Regards,
Drug Discovery Team

Conference Highlights

Networking & Panel Discussions

Be a part of stimulating discussions at Drug Discovery-2020 by triggering an exchange of viewpoints among experts in the field of biology and pharmaceutical sciences. There will be on-the-spot interactions which are sometimes difficult to achieve through normal presentations. Our aim at Drug Discovery-2020 is to facilitate exchange of diverse viewpoints to bring out more value to our audience through panel discussion.

Emerging Researchers

The United Scientific Group and meeting organizers firmly believe that the future of the field of drug discovery is a community effort involving an interdisciplinary approach that integrates technologies, concepts and basic science from diverse areas. We also believe that the success in future drug discovery depends on training and opportunity for the next generation of scientists. In this spirit, we have introduced at the 2020 conference the Harold C. Smith student and postdoctoral meeting scholar award. Merit and need-based travel awards will be provided to the students and post-docs to support their work and encourage their participation.

Poster Presentation

The best student poster grant will be given through Poster competition at Drug Discovery-2020. There will be three merit-based awards given to the best student or postdoctoral presentation at the meeting, determined by senior scientist judges. The competition will encourage the innovative research work by the graduate or undergraduate students and post-doctoral research fellows who will be selected to present their work in the form of posters.
