Short Courses*

Short courses at Drug Discovery Chemistry are designed to be instructional and interactive. The class size allows for one-on-one interactions between the instructors and attendees. Time is also built into the schedule for Q&A throughout. The courses include introductions for those new to the field, as well as explanations on more technical aspects than time allows during our main conference presentations. Instructors are drawn from industry and academics alike, many of whom are recognized authorities in their fields or have teaching experience.
