2016-05 | JCUP VII | Tokyo, JP

Tokyo, Japan • May 19-20, 2016

JCUP is OpenEye's annual Japanese science meeting. An off-shoot of our CUP meeting held in Santa Fe, this meeting aims to bring together our Japanese users with other leading scientists both inside and out of OpenEye to discuss the challenges of drug discovery.

About JCUP VII (2016)
This year, JCUP will feature two prominent themes: Structure and Industry. Structure-based science that is rooted in biophysics and quantum chemistry will be a focus, with both domestic non-profit speakers and international industrial speakers all on hand to present their experience. Key industry-leading, senior-level international speakers who sit on the front lines of translationally-relevant projects will undoubtedly add to the excitement of JCUP. With additional time for networking and exchange of ideas included, this year’s JCUP is sure to be one of the best to date.
