Accelerator Structural Biology Conference 2016

The 2016 Cancer Research UK Leicester Centre Network Accelerator Conference will bring together world leading experts to discuss accelerating cancer drug discovery through a networked structural biology approach.

This one-day conference will cover the following topics:

  • Structural biology in therapeutic antibody development: mechanistic insights and novel approaches
  • Protein expression in insect cells: successful and salutary tales
  • Development of small molecule inhibitors of cFLIP
  • Accelerating toward novel therapies for lung cancer
  • CRUK Medimmune Alliance Laboratory and antibody generation using phage display
  • Fragment screening against challenging targets
  • Structure based drug design of potent KDM4/5 histone demethylase inhibitors
  • Optimisation of PKC-iota inhibitors through structure-based design
  • Fragment based approaches for tackling difficult oncology drug targets
  • Protein kinase activation by the Hsp90 molecular chaperone system
