Recent advances in cell-based screening, organoids, CRISPR-gene editing, agile chemical design and high quality chemical probe libraries are enabling a more robust hypothesis-generating approach to cancer drug discovery under appropriate disease context. Such developments complemented by advances in bioinformatics and emerging artificial intelligence solutions provide a new opportunity for serendipity to innovate and accelerate cancer drug discovery towards new biological target space and increased clinical success.
Our speakers will present the latest developments in:
Artificial Intelligence in cancer drug discovery; Expansion of high quality chemical probe libraries for target discovery and validation; Innovative chemical design based on cancer cell phenotypes.
