Drug Repurposing

November 2019

Birmingham, UK

A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting



Registration opening soon. Sign up for alerts by using the registration button.

Abstract deadline: to be announced.


Earlybird registration deadline: to be announced.


Drug repurposing represents a promising approach to find new therapeutic uses for existing drugs. This two-day meeting will provide a platform to highlight some of the latest developments in the field of drug repurposing.


There is a need for more systematic and strategic approaches and resources, and this meeting wants to highlight and showcase such efforts besides recent drug repurposing studies.


The field of drug repurposing provides a natural opportunity to combine the strengths of the academic and industrial field. Therefore, we encourage scientists from both sectors, as well as clinicians, to attend this meeting and use it as a networking opportunity and an interdisciplinary forum for discussion.



Oral communication slots will be available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.


Student Bursaries are available for this meeting.
