Leiden Early Drug Discovery & Development
LED3 Chemical Biology Talks
The LED3 Network, consisting of researchers from the Leiden Institute of Chemistry (LIC), the Institute of Biology Leiden (IBL) and the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research (LACDR), is very excited to organise the “LED3 Chemical Biology Talks”. This lecture series brings excellent researchers in the field of Chemical Biology to our university, and exposes our students to top science conducted in this area.
Furthermore, it strengthens the network and the active exchange of researchers interested in Chemical Biology across our three member institutes and, in this way, fosters interdisciplinary research in the field of Chemical Biology at Leiden University.
The lecture series exemplifies the focus of Leiden University on understanding biological processes at the molecular level to strengthen the knowledge base of human health and disease. The series is open for all, but especially aimed at researchers with an interest in Chemical Biology and its application for drug discovery.
The LED3 Chemical Biology Talks will be held approximately once a month. The format is an approximately 45 min lecture followed by a Q&A session and an informal "meet-and-greet" outside the lecture hall, in which interested researchers can get in direct contact with the speakers.
