After a significant hiatus, we are excited to once again host FBLD 2024 in the heart of Boston at the George Sherman Union, part of the BU Campus from September 22nd through 25th 2024.

We are delighted to host the first in-person event after a six-year break. Fragment-Based Lead Discovery continues to be a rapidly growing, multidisciplinary endeavour. As such delegates with expertise in chemistry, biochemistry and related disciplines will be at the conference, providing you with excellent access to your key customers.

We look forward to welcoming both delegates and exhibitors to engage in a high-quality meeting with talks, workshops, poster sessions and vendor exhibits exploring all aspects of fragment-based drug discovery.
