The European Laboratory Research & Innovation Group (ELRIG) UK has announced programme details for Drug Discovery 2021, which will take place at the Exhibition Centre ACC in Liverpool, UK, from October 19–20. The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) will host its Innovation AveNEW to showcase emerging innovations and companies.
The free-to-attend, in-person event aims to provide a platform to re-connect, re-invent and re-imagine drug discovery with experts from industry, academia and global pharmaceutical organisations.
Sanj Kumar, General Manager of ELRIG UK, said: “This last year has seen unprecedented scientific progress, and ELRIG UK is committed to ensuring that our events provide highly relevant networking opportunities and content to support this continued success. ELRIG Drug Discovery is widely recognised as Europe’s largest meeting place on the application of drug discovery, and we are proud to partner with SLAS, an organisation at the industry forefront, to promote the most exciting emerging products, services and companies in Europe.”
Vicki Loise, CEO of SLAS, said: “The companies selected for our Innovation AveNEW are given the opportunity to raise awareness of their new company, product or service to a global audience. At SLAS, we are very pleased to partner with ELRIG UK, and we are confident that the inclusion of our Innovation AveNEW in this year’s Drug Discovery programme will complement its mission to provide freely accessibly scientific content, promotion and networking opportunities.”
