LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, December 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Industry experts are set to discuss on the latest developments in the field of Drug Discovery Chemistry at the 3rd Annual Drug Discovery Chemistry Conference 2019, taking place in London, UK.

There is unwavering pressure on drug discovery scientists to be more innovative and creative whilst at the same time be more efficient in discovering a higher number of successful drug candidates. In the past two years the conference and workshop had been a success, providing delegates with an opportunity to discuss, learn and gain insight into the latest industry topics.

For this reason, SMi encourages industry peers to attend the 3rd Annual Drug Discovery Chemistry Conference (http://www.drug-discovery.co.uk/PR2) taking place on 18th and 19th March 2019 in London, UK.

Since the last featured speaker interviews, SMi Pharma has had the opportunity to sit down with two other expert speakers from GSK and F Hoffman-La Roche to discuss some of the challenges they face in the industry and their strategies for overcoming them. The following are excerpts from those Q&A sessions:

An interview with Markus Queisser, Scientific Leader, GlaxoSmithKline:
Which emerging advances in the field are you most excited about?
"I am very excited about the emerging PROTAC testing combined with pharmacology data and the potential PD/PK disconnect, demonstrating potential benefits in vivo. The whole industry is waiting for the first clinical trial studies using this new modality."

An interview with Hasane Ratni, Expert Scientist, F Hoffman-La Roche:
What, in your opinion, are the biggest challenges drug discovery scientists are facing currently?
"Certainly, the increased difficulties/hurdles to reach the market, the capacities to integrate the large volume of data, to visualise them and the pressure to reduce timelines as much as possible.
I am very excited about the emerging PROTAC testing combined with pharmacology data and the potential PD/PK disconnect, demonstrating potential benefits in vivo. The whole industry is waiting for the first clinical trial studies using this new modality."
