Conference Overview:

This year's Discovery Strategies Conference highlights the laboratory mouse as a predictive tool in the drug discovery and development process. A central theme will be improving concordance between model systems and human, and the emerging role of mice in assessing drug safety and clinical efficacy. Thought leaders will present and discuss cutting-edge methods used to identify potential drug targets and elucidate the mechanisms and pathways by which xenobiotics elicit both desirable and undesirable effects. Presentations will include the use of QTL analysis and in silico mapping to identify key pathway components that underlie phenotypes associated with both disease and clinical response to pharmaceutical compounds. Other technologies such as RNAi and gene trapping and targeting will also be discussed.
