Cambridge-based Astex Pharmaceuticals has grown from a Biotech start-up (from Cambridge's Biochemistry Department) to a world leader in innovative drug discovery.

Astex's Sustaining Innovation Postdoctoral Programme gives researchers the opportunity to perform cutting-edge research in a diverse and dynamic industrial environment.

Dominic Tisi, coordinator of the Sustaining Innovation programme, will share insights into the background and evolution of Astex Pharmaceuticals from start-up biotech to pioneers of fragment-based drug discovery.

He will be discussing the Sustaining Innovation programme and how this continues to have significant impact across multiple research areas at Astex.

Dominic will be joined by two current members of the Sustaining Innovation Postdoc programme, Honorine Lebraud and Harry Jubb.

Both Honorine and Harry will give their own personal insights and perspectives of research within an industrial setting and the challenges and opportunities this can provide.

There will be plenty of opportunity to network, along with pizza and beer!

This event is free to attend but please register here.
