Encoded Libraries for Small Molecule Discovery

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 3rd Annual

Encoded Libraries for Small Molecule Discovery

Encoded Libraries for Small Molecule Discovery

May 19-20, 2021


DNA-encoded libraries (DELs) are gaining a foothold in many drug lead discovery programs for small molecule therapeutics. Many questions still remain, however, such as library design strategies: which chemistries are under or over-represented and are different types of libraries better suited for specific targets? DEL-generated compounds are also sometimes more difficult for the medicinal chemist to work with because they are typically bigger and more potent than hits from traditional small molecule screens. One of the biggest challenges is how to sort through the increased number of hits produced by DEL screens to decide which to further optimize. Cambridge Healthech Institute’s 3rd Annual Encoded Libraries conference will focus on these questions and more; join your colleagues to stay abreast of the field and learn from one another.


Coverage will likely include:


  • Encoded library technology innovations to enrich for drug-like compounds 
  • Case studies of DEL-origin compounds progressing in drug development
  • AI and other approaches for DEL hit selection/lead generation decisions
  • Applying DEL to generate binders for targeted protein degradation


If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.


The deadline for priority consideration is December 18, 2020.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.


We hope you can join us for this and the three concurrent day-and-a-half conferences during the second half of our 16th Annual Drug Discovery Chemistry event. Joining this virtual community in real-time allows you to ask questions of the speakers and engage with colleagues. Plus, you can return later to view the concurrent presentations and Q&A panels that you missed, via On-Demand access.
