Following on from our previous Symposiums in Manchester (2010), Sheffield (2012) and Leeds (2014), we are pleased to announce the success of our 2016 ‘Synthesis in Drug Discovery and Development’4th Symposium.

Located in the heart of Liverpool at Liverpool Hope University, we invited a collection of speakers from both Industry and Academia, providing an opportunity for a section of the chemistry community to meet, network, and discuss the work our various organisations have carried out.

Our one day event brought together scientists and managers in pharmaceutical, agrochemical and biotechnology companies in addition to students and academics from universities and various research institutions.

The audience of over 100 enjoyed a varied and stimulating series of talks on the theme of ‘Synthesis in Drug Discovery and Development’.

The day included presentations given by senior scientists from the University of Cambridge, RedX Pharma, Pfizer, University of Liverpool, Durham University, C4X Discovery, and Peakdale Molecular.

Over 20 delegates contributed posters based on the day’s theme and after a tough judging session the prize for the best poster was awarded to Daniel  O’Flynn, from Bristol University.

The event was also supported by 16 exhibitors from various leading life science suppliers.

We are delighted that the day was a success, thank you to all who attended, exhibited and shared discussions on the day. The Peakdale Symposium is the pinnacle of our bi-yearly calendar, organised by Peakdale Research Leaders and Business Development team. Early planning is already underway for Peakdale’s 5th Symposium, if you’d like more information regarding our Symposium or any of our services, get in touch with the team.
