This conference brings together the top players, experts and decision makers to inform about latest developments, opportunities and challenges and to brainstorm and discuss in an interactive environment the most pressing topics related to the task of moving kinase inhibitor based drugs into clinical studies and beyond.

Topics to be Discussed:

* efficacy
* safety evaluation
* selectivity
* pharmacokinetics
* mechanism of action
* challenges of clinical trial set-ups
* case studies of compounds in clinical trials success and failureallosteric inhibitors
* arising mutations
* resistance
* combination therapies
* issues and recommendations for approvals of kinase inhibitors
* new therapeutic scopes - beyond oncology
