See the attached announcement of the October 6 TB Drug Symposium.
Please join us on Monday October 6, 2008, for a symposium on Tuberculosis Drug Discovery. This one-day program will bring together international leaders in drug discovery with students, postdocs, and researchers in and around Seattle to stimulate discussion on the hurdles we face in TB drug discovery. Our program will focus on two areas: the biological keys to discovering faster therapies, including models of persistence and target identification/validation, and various approaches to early phase drug discovery, including whole cell screens and structure-based design.
The symposium will be held 9:00am-4:30pm at Seattle Biomedical Research Institute, 307 Westlake Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109.
A plenary lecture will be delivered by Professor Douglas Young, Imperial College of London, at Foege Auditorium, Room S040, Genome Sciences Building, University of Washington.
