The UCL Small Molecule Therapeutic Innovation Network is delighted to announce that they will be holding a Small Molecule Dragons' Den event at UCL School of Pharmacy on Thursday 5th July, 1.30pm-6.00pm.

The event is open to all researchers at UCL and also to those from the wider drug discovery community including pharma & biotech companies, contract research organisations and life science investors.

A prize will be awarded for the best pitch chosen by the Dragons. The pitches will be followed by a poster viewing (one prize winner) and networking session, open to all. This will provide an opportunity to learn about a wider range of drug discovery activities at UCL and the various funding and support mechanism available.

If you would like to pitch an idea or present a poster describing your drug discovery approach, please email your one page proposal to r.angell@ucl.ac.uk by the 1st June 2018.

Draft Agenda will be available closer to the event.
