In order for our community to remain in touch during these difficult times, we thought to connect virtually to present you a high-profile selection of talks on October 28, 2020 for a digital session on Biophysics for Drug Discovery. Discover the programme here!



The 8th edition of the conference intends again to bring together biophysicists and medicinal chemists, the synergy between their disciplines being key to deliver better drugs on a shorter timeline.

The Scientific Programme will include the following sessions:

  • Induced-Proximity Drug Discovery: Selective Protein Degraders, PPI Stabilizers, etc.
  • Covalent Modifications for Drug Discovery
  • Integrative Structural Biology & Biophysics - including Computational Methods and Hybrid Methods
  • Advances in Biophysical Techniques: Single-Molecule Techniques, Label-Free Technologies, Surface-Immobilized Techniques beyond SPR
  • Hot Topics
  • Cryo-EM in Drug Discovery - Accelerating Drug Design of Challenging Targets, a full day session organized by Thermo Fisher Scientific, Platinum Sponsor of the NovAliX Conference.

The conference will be hosted at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center in Boston, MA. The programme will start at 10am on Wednesday, March 10 and finish early afternoon on Friday, March 12. The Session on Cryo-EM will take place on Thursday, March 11.
