The School on Drug Discovery is organized by the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague (www.uct-prague.eu), the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS, Prague, (www.uochb.cz) and the Weizmann Institute of Science (www.weizmann.ac.il), Rehovot. The Summer School gives a broad overview on the advances in the drug discovery process, from basic science to the production process development. As in previous years, the attendants are welcome to present their research in the form of poster presentations.

Registration is now open for the 8th school, this time back in Prague, Czech Republic and the plan is to organize it as an in-person event.
