Bench to bedside: episode 2 - "harnessing 'omics"

BIA’s Science and Innovation Advisory Committee (SIAC) are delivering a series of webinars in 2019 entitled ‘Bench to Bedside’. The content has been proposed by industry and will explore the drug discovery process from discovery to delivery. The series will be concluded with a panel session at our UK Bioscience Forum on 17 October.

This webinar will cover the range of ‘omic’ investigations used to elucidate disease pathways and their use in drug discovery and development.
