5th International Conference on Drug Discovery and Therapy
February 18th - 21st, 2013, Dubai, UAE

This unique international conference provides a platform for all pharmaceutical scientists, internists and primary care physicians to discuss and learn about all the important international breakthrough developments in drug discovery and on new therapeutics.

This conference organized by Eureka Science with the support of the Higher Colleges of Technology, UAE, focuses on the interdisciplinary fields of drug discovery, drug therapy and translational medicine. 

After the overwhelming success of the previous conferences held in Dubai in February 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012 (where many Nobel Laureates attended), the fifth conference promises to be a much larger event with over 500 talks delivered and 40 thematic sessions with poster presentations and an associated commercial exhibition.

Throughout the course of the four day conference, you will have the opportunity to both expanding the network and hear leaders from the international pharmaceutical, academic and clinical communities.
