The Benefits of Presenting at SLAS2018

Delivering a podium or poster presentation at SLAS2018 offers significant benefits to both you and your organization. The SLAS community is extremely knowledgeable, well-connected, friendly and collaborative. As such, you can expect thoughtful input from a well-qualified scientific audience on how to further or refine your research, including insight to commercialization and partnership opportunities. As a presenter, you will also gain admittance to a select group of subject matter experts with whom you can network and exchange ideas not only at the conference, but on a year-round basis.

Read on to learn more about the benefits of presenting from some folks who know best — members of the SLAS2018 Scientific Program Committee:


“The SLAS International Conference welcomes a broad audience from very diverse professional backgrounds and career stages. Benefits of presenting include recognition science and technological innovation, and facilitation of personnel recruitment. Presenters will get feedback from both industrial and academic researchers at SLAS2018.”

Taosheng Chen, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Automation and High-Throughput Technologies Track Chair

“SLAS is one of the largest conferences that focuses on applied biological, bioengineering, and chemical research, which is the driver of biological and pharmaceutical innovation. SLAS attracts a unique balance of industry and academic attendees, thus providing unusually broad opportunities for networking and collaboration. Presenting provides direct exposure for one's own or one's company's research to the most critical, but also helpful, audience — peers. The unique nature of SLAS — being focused on applied research — also invites the opportunity for questions or suggestions posed to the presenter that may inspire alternative uses or directions for the described material.”

Cellular Technologies Track Chairs

“SLAS is the foremost international conference for those interested in assay development for drug discovery. The blend of technical and scientific expertise on show from the podium presentations, posters and vendor floor are unequalled.”

Edward Ainscow, Carrick Therapeutics
Assay Development and Screening Track Chair

“By attending and presenting at the SLAS International Conference, scientists can hear about cutting edge developments in science and technology, which seed ideas for future collaborations and projects. To remain at the cutting edge, it is increasingly important that organizations look outward, and meetings such as SLAS provide the opportunity to learn about the evolving landscape of science and technology, from which to develop future strategic direction.”

Melanie Leveridge, GlaxoSmithKline
Advances in Bioanalytics and Biomarkers Track Chair

“SLAS2018 offers visibility to diverse audience of drug hunters from academia, biotech and pharma as well as exposure to a wealth of technology suppliers interesting in providing innovative solutions. Within this conference there is an opportunity to hear about strategic and specific applications of technologies for successful drug discovery and an abundance of networking opportunities with leading thinkers, like minded practitioners, technology vendors.”

Chun-wa Chung, GlaxoSmithKline
Drug Target Strategies Track Chair
