Calling all pharma-focused chemists! Attending the ACS national meeting in DC? You won’t want to miss the first Pharma Leaders conference symposium, “ACS Pharma Leaders: Working together to make a difference.”
The symposium will be held from 1 to 4 PM on Aug. 21, 2017, in Room 146C of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
The symposium will continue discussions on topics central to the most recent ACS Pharma Leaders conference: neglected diseases, chemistry collaborations, and predictive science; AbbVie hosted the conference in October 2016.
The annual ACS Pharma Leaders conference, which is co-organized by ACS Industry Member Programs and a different pharma company each year, convenes invited chemistry leaders in pharma, who explore possible collaborations on precompetitive and noncompetitive issues with the goal of accelerating drug development.
Philip Kym of AbbVie, Catherine Peishoff (formerly of GSK), and Wendy Young of Genentech are organizers of the symposium, which will feature the following speakers: Richard Connell of Pfizer; Lisa Shewchuk of GlaxoSmithKline; Bradley Sherborne of Merck; Anil Vasudevan of AbbVie; Peter Warner of The Gates Foundation; and Dale Kempf of AbbVie.Sounds interesting - wish I was going!
