Discovery on Target Discovery on Target
September 21-24, 2015 | Boston, MA
Cambridge Healthtech Institute will host its 13th Annual Discovery on Target event showcasing current and emerging “hot” targets for the pharmaceutical industry September 21-24, 2015 in Boston, MA.

Targeting the Ubiquitin Proteasome System Targeting the Ubiquitin Proteasome System
September 22-23, 2015 | Boston, MA
It is no surprise that emerging strategies in drug discovery moving away from single-target approaches are shifting toward targeting multicomponent cellular machineries such as the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) to elicit therapeutic response in comple

Targeting Epigenetic Readers and Chromatin Remodelers Targeting Epigenetic Readers and Chromatin Remodelers

Immunology Basics for Chemists DVD Immunology Basics for Chemists DVD
April 20, 2015 |
This course is aimed for medicinal chemists or anyone who needs a good immunology review or would like a better understanding of the major cellular and molecular components of the immune system with a focus on the targets relevant to drug discovery. The course reviews the inflammatory process and then covers the major autoimmune & inflammation-related diseases that are actively being researched. The last portion of the course covers the current treatment landscape and promising drug targets.
Introduction to Adoptive T Cell Therapies DVD Introduction to Adoptive T Cell Therapies DVD
May 5, 2014 |
Adoptive T cell therapy has the potential to increase antitumor immunity, enhance vaccine efficacy, and limit graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Recent advances in protein engineering and molecular biology have increased the feasibility of using genetically engineered T cells to treat disease, leading to an influx of new discoveries and techniques. This course DVD will educate viewers on the basic rules of adoptive T cell therapies before delving into strategies for developing chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) and T cell receptors (TCRs).
Allosteric Modulators of GPCRs Allosteric Modulators of GPCRs
September 23, 2013 |
Allosteric modulators represent a novel paradigm to therapeutically target G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). However, identification and characterization of allosteric modulators using standard functional assays remain elusive due to the ‘context-dependent phenomena’. This course will discuss important aspects of hit identification and validation of allosteric modulators in GPCR research activity.
