Residential School on Medicinal Chemistry and Biology in Drug Discovery (ResMed)

DATES ANNOUNCED for 2019: June 9-14, 2019

ResMed is co-sponsored by
the ACS MEDI Division

The Residential School on Medicinal Chemistry and Biology in Drug Discovery is a graduate level course designed for chemists and biologists interested in broadening their understanding of the fundamental principles of drug discovery research and preclinical development. Scientists from related disciplines would also gain a clearer appreciation for the processes and methods important to drug discovery through clinical development.

We are also proud to announce that our Hotel Resident attendees will be staying at The Madison Hotel and the Hyatt Regency-Morristown. Each room is beautifully appointed and single occupancy, with full breakfast bar. There will be a shuttle to transport attendees to and from the campus.
