BTS Discovery Toxicology 2020 Postponement Announcement – Covid 19

Given the ongoing situation of the Coronavirus pandemic, the organising committee has taken the decision to postpone the Discovery Toxicology 2020 meeting o. The event will now be held on Thursday the 20th May 2021 at Alderley Park Conference Centre.

With the health and well-being of attendees and the wider public of paramount importance, the postponement of our meeting was agreed as the most sensible course of action.

All delegate registrations have been withdrawn and registration has now been closed. All registered delegates will receive information to this effect separately by email. Registration will re-open later in the year so please keep an eye out for announcements later in the year.

To all our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates, we thank you for your continued engagement and for your support of our meeting. We will endeavour to bring you the same exciting scientific agenda to you in September. We hope you can join us!

If you have any further queries please contact: DiscoTox2020@sygnaturediscovery.com

Overview

Safety risks are a major cause of attrition in drug discovery and development. A well designed and delivered toxicology package together with prompt and robust problem solving can make the difference between success and failure.

With advances in novel in vitro and in silico methodologies along with greater understanding of the underlying mechanisms, biomarkers and associated molecular endpoints, discovery toxicology has emerged as a fundamental aspect of early stage R&D and is now recognized as a key step to build for success later in projects.

Who should attend?

This one day meeting will showcase strategies that are enabling more efficient and robust approaches to improve success including novel methods for assessing renal, cardiovascular, GI and bone marrow toxicity alongside emerging areas of science, such as the microbiome, immunological reactions, and immune therapy.

It will be of interest to those from academia, Pharma (large and small) and to CROs who wish to contribute their expertise and to learn more about new developments in drug discovery and development.

Call for Abstracts: Posters & Short Presentations

The conference committee has carefully selected the speaker line up, however a limited number of presentations opportunities will be made available to high quality abstract submissions.
