Your safety and comfort are our priority. To provide maximum flexibility to match your needs, CHI provides this event as both an in-person and virtual experience. We feel the combination of these two experiences will bring about a truly unique event. This new conference norm will fuse the best of our traditional onsite events with the expanded benefits of a virtual conference. Bringing together the life sciences community is what CHI does, and we look forward to bringing our community together with this new offering.

Select an in-person or virtual option, and you have the flexibility to switch your preferred event experience at any time leading up to the conference. Simply contact us, and we will either charge you the difference for upgrading to in-person or credit back the price for transferring to virtual.

The Discovery on Target Community Reconnects in 2021!

Discovery on Target (DOT) is the industry’s preeminent event on novel drug targets and technologies for drug discovery professionals. DOT highlights advances in current and emerging “hot” targets and technologies, as well as target validation strategies for the discovery and development of novel therapeutic agents, ranging from biologics to small molecules.

We aim to meet your research needs. Delegates can visit numerous concurrent sessions in-person and online and – with on-demand access to presentations – benefit even from those you can’t attend live. You can customize your experience further through focused short courses, interactive discussions, and networking options that help you engage with experts and solutions providers onsite, or from the comfort of home!
