When establishing a new laboratory for research into chemical biology and drug discovery, what are the criteria you should keep in mind? The speakers for this webinar will discuss how to assess the needs for equipment, space and personnel to set up a thriving research environment. Craig Lindsley of Vanderbilt University will discuss the key instrumentation in medicinal chemistry, pharmacology and other related disciplines to enable drug discovery in an academic environment. Brendan Beahm of Aiken BioSciences will discuss on how to set up operations for a small startup biotechnology company and bring in his experience in establishing Carolyn Bertozzi's laboratory in chemical biology a few years ago at Stanford University.

The webinar will delve into the details of how to set up a laboratory poised to do notable research and development by ensuring that the proper investment is made into equipment, facilities and people.
