Cutting Edge / Drug Discovery & Development





Academic drug discovery has emerged greatly as an adjunct approach to traditional pharmaceutical development in the drive to deliver innovative new medicines. The Cutting Edge / Drug Discovery & Development in Michigan Symposium will showcase drug R&D activities at the state’s University Research Corridor (URC) institutions and discuss their science, capabilities, and enterprises. The program is meant to bring together representatives from academia and the bio-industry, as well as others, to talk about Michigan’s current drug discovery efforts and future capacity for partnerships. 


This symposium is presented by MichBio, the biosciences trade association for the state of Michigan, and the University Research Corridor, an academic research cluster leading innovation in Michigan and the Great Lakes region (an alliance of Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, and Wayne State University). The symposium is hosted by Wayne State University.
