CFP-Drug Discovery Informatics:eCheminfo2009 Phila/BursaryDeadline Mar31

This is a reminder as the deadlines for abstract submission and bursary award applications are March 31.
This annual community of practice meeting is taking place for the fifth time and brings together a unique combination of pharmaceutical and healthcare industry experts, principal investigators and researchers from the academic and government sectors, and leaders from innovative enterprises. The smaller and more intimate meeting format pursued has fostered the type of collaboration not always found at large conferences.
