The goal of the colloquium is to showcase the synergistic interaction between chemistry, biology, pharmacology, and bioinformatics in the process of drug development. Our aim is to promote a professional dialogue between students and experts from different disciplines interested in the processes of drug discovery and development. This conference provides a platform for undergraduates, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows to present their research. This conference will also include a professional development session, as well as providing great networking opportunities. This year's event is organized by student chapters of University of Arkansas for Medical sciences and University of Mississippi.
