The energetic Exhibit Hall featured 62 companies with novel technologies and solutions. These leading technology and service providers extended their reach across agenda talks showcasing new offerings to the scientific community. Attendees also viewed 100+ posters revealing ongoing, cutting-edge drug discovery research by students, academia, and industry – a glimpse of the field’s dynamic future.

The event included 260+ expert speakers, 16 conference tracks, 1 symposium, and 6 interactive courses. Engagement was strong across topics as hot as protein degradation and RNA; new programming on immunomodulationantiviralsneurodegeneration targetsKRAS, and AI; stalwarts like membrane proteins; and plenty more.
