Philadelphia Drug Discovery Forum: Biacore User Day

Scientific Seminar
Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The mission of the Philadelphia Drug Discovery Forum is to bring together drug discovery scientists from academia, bio-pharma industry and government to present and discuss their non-proprietary research. We have a common vested interest in identifying new targets, developing assays, and synthesizing new chemical entities for use as biological probes and, ultimately, new drug therapeutics. The forum serves as a platform for networking, initiating and sustaining collaborations within the community.

Join your fellow Biacore™ users to discover exciting new research and applications while networking with peers from academia and industry.

  • Listen to presentations on the latest applications in biomolecular interactions.
  • Learn about new Biacore instrument and software capabilities including the recently launched Biacore 8K+ and Insight software, our flagship evaluation package.
  • Share best practices, knowledge and tricks of the trade.
