Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten, Berlin, Germany

Dr. Robert Goodnow


Executive Director
Chemistry Innovation Center, AstraZeneca, USA


17:30 Building compound archives for future targets

  • Will the targets of the future be covered by the chemical matter of today?

  • Do we have the tools that can answer this question?

  • The interplay between druggability and ligandability

  • Future directions

Panel discussion will be followed by an Open Mic session: Join the discussion with the panel of experts and find collectively possible approaches and solutions


09:45 DNA-encoded chemistry: Enabling the deeper sampling of chemical space for drug discovery

  • Cost effective exploration of chemical spaces four to five orders of magnitude more deeply than by HTS

  • New opportunities and challenges of DNA-encoded library technology

  • Aqueous synthetic chemistry and building blocks diversity

  • What value is coming out of this approach?


13:45 Workshop C - Intelligent library design and synthesis in practice: Strategies to build a screening collection

This is a practical workshop following the optimized workflow towards the design and synthesis of the desired compound libraries.

  • Design of the screening collection

  • Diversity and targeted libraries

  • Exploration of alternate screening modalities

  • Analysis of screening results
