SC4: Modern Lead Generation Strategies - Part 1 - Detailed Agenda

Lead Generation is where chemical project assets are first created, and as such it is the area of Medicinal Chemistry that most strongly influences timelines and attrition rates. This discipline has undergone significant paradigm changes within recent years as new hit generation techniques have emerged and novel lead characterization methods have been invented. This two part short course will give a comprehensive and up to date review of the field along with many practical examples and is intended for a broader audience ranging from beginner to advanced level.

Part 1 will introduce lead generation and the different hit generation methods available today.
