The Society organises four high quality, one-day scientific meetings each year focussed on the discovery and development of new medicines. The meetings are usually held in Central London although, we also regularly hold meetings at pharmaceutical companies across the UK. At least one meeting is devoted to a therapeutic area and another to medicinal chemistry. The others cover the widest possible aspects of Drug Discovery.

The Society also provides a bursary scheme for students to attend meetings. To find out more click here
