Philadelphia Drug Discovery Forum

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.

Philadelphia Drug Discovery Forum

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.

  • March 12, 2020  - Functional Genomics
  • April 9, 2020 - Gene Therapy
