Research & Innovation 2020

Therapeutic innovation for the new decade

The 2020 ELRIG Research & Innovation conference will discuss how the most promising new biology is being identified and explore emerging technologies and innovations to enable this science to be translated into successful therapeutics. The four scientific sessions will address different aspects of innovation in biology and discovery technologies as we move into a new decade:

  • Innovations in structural biology & biophysics: Examining the prospects for structural biology and biophysics in complex and more physiological systems and in supporting the entire discovery process from target identification through to assessment of target engagement
  • The rise of immunology across Discovery: Moving beyond the field of immuno-oncology to explore both the rising interest in immunology-based targets in other therapeutic areas and highlight the potential of different therapeutic modalities.
  • Seeking novel drug targets for the Discovery pipeline: Highlighting new technologies that are being developed alongside new approaches to academia-industry collaboration that are combining to build a pipeline of new targets for drug discovery.
  • Good bugs / bad bugs: The first part of this session will explore the biology of the microbiome in health and disease and the prospects for microbiome-targeting drug therapies. The second part will concentrate on technical and platform innovations in the field of antibiotic discovery.
