TPD Conferences

Since the explosion in interest in TPD after around 2012, the only thing which has proliferated faster than new TPD biotechs is the number of conferences.

There's often some overlap in speakers in these meetings so you certainly don't need to go to all of them. Pick carefully otherwise it can get expensive on your travel budget


Degraders & Molecular Glues (links to part 1 and part 2 of conference)

1st-4th April, 2024  San Diego, CA

Two part meeting from CHI with impressive range of biotech, pharma & academic speakers. San Diego in the spring is a great place to talk TPD.


NEW - Ligase Targeting Drug Development Summit (website)

7th - 9th May 2024, Boston, US

Everyone seems to be looking for new E3 ligases for application to glue & PROTAC-based therapeutic discovery but it's not as easy as you think. Get some tips on ways to do it at this meeting.


Protein Degradation in Focus Symposium (website)

Sunday 19th – 22nd May 2024, University of Dundee, UK

Amazing range of speakers for this event to celebrate the opening of Alessio Ciulli’s Centre for TPD in Dundee, Scotland. Literally a who’s who of TPD!


NEW - Targeted Protein Degradation: past, current and future strategies (website)

30th May 2024 Paris (Sanofi Gentilly campus)

Impressive lineup for one day France TPD meeting organized by the Société de Chimie Thérapeutique (SCT)


NEW - 4th Annual Induced-Proximity-Based Drug Discovery Summit (website)
July 23rd - 25th, 2024, Boston, US

Induced proximity but not PROTACs - this meeting covers a range of novel applications of induced-proximity using glue-like and bifunctional agents.


22nd Annual Discovery on Target (website)
September 30 - October 3, 2024, Boston, US

Usually good range of TPD speakers along with other interesting sessions


NEW - SCI & RSC - Targeted Protein Degradation 4 (website)
October 15th-16th, 2024, Cranfield University, UK

Good line-up for UK-based event covering all aspects of TPD & Induced-Proximity


7th Annual TPD & Induced-Proximity Conference (website)

28th - 31st October, Boston, US

Spread over 4 days of varied sessions from clinical updates to new technologies, this is the premier TPD event of the year and Hanson Wade’s flagship TPD event – if you only go to one, go to this one.


NEW - Drug Discovery Chemistry Europe (website)
December 3rd-5th, 2024, Barcelona, Spain

Inaugural CHI event with range of tracks including TPD. Talking great science in Barcelona before Christmas - what's not to love?



Past 2024 events:

Keystone TPD meeting (website)

January 21-24th 2024, Keystone Resort, Keystone, Colorado, US

Always a good meeting - organised by James Bradner, Eric Fischer and Brenda Schulman - skiing anyone?


2nd Molecular Glue Drug Development Summit (website)

January 30 - February 1, 2024, Boston, US

Another HansonWade offering in their extensive TPD catalogue


Heterobifunctional Targeted Protein Degraders one-day meeting (website)
21 February 2024 - NH Collection Frankfurt Spin Tower, Güterplatz 1, 60327 Frankfurt, Germany  

Drug metabolism & pharmacokinetic profiles of bifunctional molecules can be challenging to optimise and extrapolate to predict clinical doses so this meeting, organised by two seasoned TPD experts Caroline Rynn (Roche) and Heide Duevel (Merck KGaA), should be a must-see event.


4th Annual TPD Europe (website)

19th – 21st March, 2024  London, UK

Latest in successful series from Hanson Wade with good balance of industry & academic speakers with range of round tables etc but the high registration costs won’t be for everyone.
