2012 Drug Discovery & Translational Medicine Symposium Schedule

This year, the event will focus on Yale's ever-expanding capabilities in Oncology – but again, the program will be well represented by talks in other areas.

  • The bulk of the program will comprise of a series of 20-minute focused presentations from faculty describing past and ongoing therapeutic development efforts at Yale.
  • In addition to research talks, the day will include two panel discussions.
    "Translational Medicine in Oncology in 2012 – The Gilead Example" will present the views of the key Yale faculty involved in this collaboration.
    "What Industry Looks For in a Partner" will feature industry experts.
  • Jonathan Rothberg, the Yale-educated serial-entrepreneur, is confirmed as the lunchtime speaker (sandwiches provided).
  • A mid-day poster session will be held – with prizes for the best posters. Posters should be mounted for display on easels (poster instructions).
