CHI's 13th Annual World Pharma Congress will be held May 21 - 23, 2014 in Boston. World Pharma Congress has built its niche in effectively covering the latest preclinical strategies and technologies for driving better predictions early in the drug discovery process. This year the event continues its coverage on novel preclinical models for tackling oncology and pain, while discussing ways to improve drug safety screening, formulations and drug delivery and process chemistry. Attendees and exhibitors involved in preclinical work will join forces in identifying what should be done EARLY to ensure success along the drug development pipeline. We invite all scientists—chemists, biologists, pharmacologists, toxicologists and formulation experts—to help turn this event into a collaborative forum where knowledge is shared, ideas exchanged and collaborations cemented.
