Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual

Target Validation and Phenotypic Screening

Part of 19th Annual World Preclinical Congress

June 17, 2021


Finding and validating novel, druggable targets for therapeutic intervention remains a top priority for the pharma/biotech industry. Phenotypic drug discovery tackles disease complexity and promises to deliver first-in-class drug targets. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 6th Annual Target Validation and Phenotypic Screening conference will bring together leading experts to discuss cell-based phenotypic screening, hit validation and target deconvolution, high-content screening and chemical genomics, target validation and translational strategies.


Coverage will include, but is not limited to:


  • Phenotypic drug discovery (PDD)
  • Cell-based phenotypic screening
  • High-content analysis and imaging
  • Hit validation and target deconvolution
  • Defining a cellular disease phenotype
  • Target validation and translational approaches
  • Chemoproteomics and chemogenomics
