The 8th Yao Yuan Biotech-Pharma Symposium: Emerging Therapeutics: A Fundamental Driver of Pharma’s Future Growth

Despite the high cost and low probability of success associated with drug discovery and development, we are at a time that new drugs with improved profiles and new mechanisms of action are still emerging. As a result of better understanding fundamental biology, rigorous academic and industrial research, and fruitful collaborations, scientists are discovering break-through therapies for hard-to-treat diseases and greatly benefitting patients.

Abstract of Posters for 7th Symposium

A poster session organized by YaoYuan will be held from 11:30 to 1 pm during the conference on April 18th. All student posters have been reviewed by the organization committee and 3 top posters will be awarded in the afternoon session. Following are the abstracts of 37 posters in random order. Thanks to all the participants!

The 7th Yao Yuan Biotech-Pharma Symposium

The search for revolutionary medicines has largely been hampered by the lack of biological models to predict clinical response. With the advent of technological advances that allow us to chemically probe biological complexity, the ability to identify and validate targets that significantly modulate disease biology is being realized. This symposium is aimed at highlighting ground-breaking chemical biology approaches to dissect disease processes and impact drug discovery.

Academic-Industry Connections for Drug Discovery

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 2014 Yao Yuan Conference, to be held on Saturday, March 8th, 2014, at the McCormick Tribune Campus Center at Illinois Institute of Technology. This is the sixth in a series of annual conferences Yao Yuan has sponsored, focusing on key topics in drug discovery and designed to build bridges between scientists in the US and Asia.

The 5th Yao Yuan Biotech-Pharma Symposium

The pharmaceutical industry has experienced tremendous challenges in recently years due to “patent cliff” threats as well as changes in public and healthcare policies pertaining to how medicine is accessed and paid for. These challenges have caused investors, industrial leaders and scientists to question return on investment, justification of capital spending and career sustainability in R&D.

New Drug Discovery in China 2013

The “New Drug Discovery in China” conference will provide a forum for R&D leaders of major Chinese and American pharmaceutical companies to share their successes and challenges in drug discovery.  This event will be a valuable opportunity for learning amongst professionals, academicians and students in the Midwest area of USA.  This conference will also serve as a platform to foster the interactions and communications among pharmaceutical professionals from Chicago, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Columbus and other cities in the vicinity.  As globalization of pharmaceutical industry continue
