Tremendous advances are being made in our understanding of debilitating diseases such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer's. However, despite these advances, many challenges remain in contemporary drug discovery and development.

In this symposium, thought leaders from academia and industry will discuss their research and share their vision of how the biomedical sciences will evolve in the coming decade.

Cutting-edge research from a wide variety of fields will be covered, including: target identification and validation; advances in structural biology, toxicology, and medicinal chemistry; formulation and drug delivery strategies; cellular and regenerative medicine; and personalized medicine.
