The European Microscopy Congress 2020

Copenhagen, postponed to unknown date

Europe’s largest event dedicated to microscopy and imaging. It will bring the world of scientific imaging together: Microscopists, manufacturers, and suppliers will come to share new techniques, new applications, and new technology.

Our CEO Michael Hennig has been invited to present leadXpro’s latest achievements in the session on ‘Application of cryo-EM in health industry’. Presentation examples will include the human TRPV4 with bound small molecule agonist as well as the transporter protein LPTDE, a clinically validated antibiotics drug target. Using stabilized macrobodies to enlarge the protein the structure determination could be achieved at 2.5 Å local resolution revealing details of the LPS transport mechanism.

leadXpro scientist Denis Bucher has been selected to present our structure based design approach for the discovery of novel and highly selective antagonists of the A2B adenosine receptor. Structure and computational methods guided lead optimization has yielded compounds with unprecedented selectivity, potency and ADME properties. Latest disease relevant assay results will be disclosed.

Drug Discovery Chemistry

San Diego, postponed to unknown date

Create a unique program  tailored to your interests by going back and forth among the concurrent sessions. The 2020 event includes new coverage of RNA as a small molecule target, expanded coverage of artificial intelligence for early drug discovery.

In the ‘Biophysical Approaches’ session on Friday, CEO Michael Hennig will give a lecture on the application of grating-coupled interferometry (provided by the company Creoptix) for investigation of small molecule and biologics ligand interaction with membrane targets such as GPCR’s, ion channels and transporters.  

4th annual Drug Discovery Summit
