Location: Technology Park Basel AG, Basel, Switzerland, Map

Co-sponsored by the Swiss OpenTox Chapter

Overview: Although some 300,000 compounds in nature are known, only 10% of this rich source is available for drug discovery. That’s because natural products present challenges* that we’ve never been able to solve. Is now the time? Does modern information technology offer the solution? Could new techniques – infrastructure development, data sharing, crowdsourcing, natural product mimetic library design, evidence-based workflows – provide the missing conditions for a new era of natural-based drugs and healthcare products?

Join us for the launch of InnovationWell Basel to discuss how we can advance the fascinating promise natural products offer for new drugs!  Be part of InnovationWell’s “knowledge café”.  Hear the Perspectives of experts in the field. Then, join in the informal round-table discussions that pool the diverse knowledge of all participants. InnovationWell is looking for new answers for today’s most pressing questions.
