ELRIG: New Innovative Trends in Early Drug Discovery and Sample Management
This annual one-day forum in the "darmstadtium", the science and congress center of Darmstadt, involved about 140-150 participants from research, development and industry from Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and the USA.
The scientific lecture program was complemented by a poster exhibition (with poster award for young academics). Around 30 manufacturers exhibited. There was plenty of time for discussions and networking during the coffee and lunch breaks.
Horizon Discovery's Jochen Hartner gave a talk on 'The Yin and Yang of CRISPR Screening: A Dual Approach to Revolutionize Drug Discovery' and was available afterwards to discuss 1:1 on CRISPR screening.
