Chemistry from the Beaker to the Bedside

2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Natcher Conference Center - Balcony D

Chemistry is grist for the mill of life. It underpins our understanding of biology, and is essential to the development of therapeutic agents to remedy disease and improve our quality of life. This session, ‘Chemistry from the Beaker to the Bedside’ will feature presentations by investigators who use their chemical insight to design, synthesize and discover small molecule solutions for current health challenges. That the investigators are from four different institutes within the National Institutes of Health is testament to the primacy of chemistry in biomedical research.
