6th International Conference on Drug Discovery and Therapy

February 10th - 12th, 2014, Dubai, UAE

This international conference organized by Eureka Science under the patronage of the Higher Colleges of Technology, UAE, is unique in bringing state-of-the-art in the fields of drug discovery and therapy closer to the doorstep of pharmaceutical scientists, internists and primary care physicians from all over the world.

6th ICDDT, being the most innovative event, aims to provide an open and stimulating scientific and cultural exchange that will give all the participants the opportunity to share their experiences, foster collaborations across industry and academia and evaluate emerging technologies across the globe.

As the previous conferences held in Dubai in Feb 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013 (where many Noble Laureates participated) had met with great success, the 6th ICDDT is also augured to be a mega event with a series of exclusive talks to be delivered over a diverse range of thematic sessions along with poster presentations and an associated commercial exhibition.

  • Enable participants to exchange ideas and expand network with leading pharmaceutical scientists, clinicians and internists.

  • Bring together top international scientists and clinicians presenting cutting-edge discoveries, research and new therapeutic drugs.

  • Proclaim to be the first ever international series of conferences to span the interdisciplinary fields of pre-clinical and clinical drug discovery and drug therapy.

  • Enable exhibitors to have increased visibility through branding and networking at the conference and gain direct access to a core audience of professionals and decision makers.

  • Features a prolific commercial exhibition and poster sessions.

  • Enable participants to obtain CME (Continuing Medical Education) accreditation for selected attended clinical lectures.



"The 6th ICDDT & 3rd BWC meetings went very well,  The science was very good, the attendees enjoyed the lectures and meetings,the venue was excellent as with previous meetings and the staff were always helpful.  The attendance was about what it has been in previous meetings.  The Intercontinental Hotel was excellent as was the service.

"It was no doubt a pleasure and continuous source of encouragement for the rest of my life to meet with such an enthusiastic group. I to want to express my feelings in few lines; 

1) One year before a fast and speedy communication between the participants from each member of 3rd Biotechnology Congress is definitely a reason for its success. Everything was so organized and disciplined. There was not difficult for any foreigner participant in understanding of the program schedule.

2) Scientific level was markedly maintained. Combination of Nobel Laureates and young scientists gave such an appealing opportunity which has not been offered anywhere else.

3) HCT was no doubt an excellent place for the conference due to its appealing infrastructure and space an even prime location.

4) Social activities were marvelous. But the venue of gala dinner must be informed earlier. As I could not go,  due to short notice.

5) The organizers were so concerned with each of the participants that I was surprised. I am so happy that I was the part of this conference."

"I enjoyed the conference, the quality of the academic sessions I attended was very mixed in terms data presentation and scientific results. The majority were excellent, but some were rather poor in terms of presentation (written slides full of text similar to a newspaper article on every slide...)"

Faikah  Gueler
(Hannover Medical School Carl-Neuberg-Str. 1 30625 Hannover, Germany

"I am pleased to inform you that 6th ICDDT was one of the Best Organized of 150 scientific conferences I've been presenting at during the past 25 years.


(a) Overall Organization - Excellent: very efficient, clear, timely communication and flawless execution of the program and all activities

(b) Scientific level- Overall Excellent : with individual talks ranging from(mostly) outstanding to sometimes a bit dis-organized or relatively not-so-original (but this happens at each conference) I would like to encourage More Clinical , Pharmaco-epidemiological and CER-oriented talks, and more emphasis in Translational research

(c) The venue of the conference; excellent facilities, beautiful campus, but a bit far from the city ...

(d) Social activities - Gala dinner had an attractive location and an exciting artistic program, but the food was "average" and the selection of drinks was rather limited

(e) Personal interaction of organizers with each participant - Absolutely OUTSTANDING: extremely respectful, sensitive to the needs of participants"

Michal Abrahamowicz, PhD
