Apr. 22 - Feb. 26, 2017
Division for Behavioral Pharmacology - Team Science Forum: Scientist Crosstalk on Chemistry and Behavior
Emily Jutkiewicz – Univ. of Michigan Medical School
Bruce Blough - Research Triangle Institute
The symposium/workshop will focus on the highly collaborative interactions between medicinal chemists and behavioral pharmacologists in the development and investigation of novel therapeutics. Pairs of speakers will describe findings ranging from chemical design and synthesis to in vivo evaluation of a single class of compounds. Importantly, these teams will demonstrate how scientists from these different fields communicate and educate each other, emphasizing the challenges and successes of these important scientific relationships.
