Compound Combination Special Interest Group (SIG)

Wednesday, February 7
8:00 AM - 9:15 AM
Location: 14B

The mission of the SLAS Compound Combination Screening SIG is to create a knowledge-sharing forum for screening practitioners active in the field of compound combinations. As such, the goal is to mature the field of compound combination screening, aimed at better science that accelerates the pace of drug discovery.
