Natural Compounds and Drug Development Day

Tuesday 16th May 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


After the successful launch of our Natural Compounds Special Interest Group last year we are running our second event in collaboration with Neem Biotech, the Medicines Discovery Catapult and Innovate UK.

The focus of these Special Interest Groups will be on taking natural compounds that have already been identified and for which research data already exists, to market. The group will share advice on developing routes to market, managing regulatory requirements, achieving relevant product certifications and running clinical trials.
