Andy Vinter Memorial Meeting and Cresset User Group Meeting 2020


Join us in a tribute to Andy Vinter and to reflect on how his groundbreaking research impacted drug discovery. His work formed the scientific foundation of Cresset, and has continued to underpin our technical development.

As well as invited presentations from leading researchers in our field, Cresset scientists will present our latest science and showcase upcoming solutions to help your chemists design the best molecules as efficiently as possible.

Whether you are new to Cresset, have been with us from the beginning, or are just intrigued to find out more about the solutions we offer, we look forward to seeing you there.
