More than 50 world-class speakers on drug discovery research will gather in Liverpool this autumn for one of the sector’s major conferences.
The ELRIG (European Laboratory Research and Innovation Group) Drug Discovery conference, the UK’s largest free to attend event of its kind, previously visited in 2009 and this year’s event takes place from the 13-14 October at the ACC Liverpool venue.
Organisers expect 1,000 industry leaders from across the pharma, biotech, academia and vendor communities.
University of Liverpool’s Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed will be one of the main speakers and will present on drug safety in drug development.
Dr Peter Simpson, director of the N8 Research Partnership, which is partnering with ELRIG, and who co-chaired last year’s Drug Discovery conference, said: “It is wonderful to be returning to Liverpool and ideal that this event is returning to the North, a region where health innovation is highlighted as a major economic capability. Great advancement will come from quality research insights, informal discussions, and networking, to the benefit the drug discovery and life science communities.”
