This 2.5 day symposium follows on from the very successful inaugural meeting held in 2017 containing high quality international speakers from industry and academia on topics of Medicinal Chemistry and related enabling technologies. Organised by the Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector of the Royal Society of Chemistry, together with Nordic affiliates, the meeting promises to be an exciting and invigorating gathering packed with fantastic opportunities to disseminate knowledge and expand networks.
Programme Themes and Features
The scientific programme will feature themed lectures, focusing on medicinal chemistry and related technologies and disciplines across a range of drug targets and modalities. A distinguishing feature of this symposium is the collegiate style which encourages an atmosphere of information sharing and learning.
Who should attend
Medicinal chemists at all career stages. Scientists with an interest in drug discovery or new technologies that can be applied to the drug discovery process.
Call for Posters
The call for posters is open, and papers are invited for poster presentation. The closing date is 30th April 2019, and some posters will be selected for flash oral presentation.
The call for oral abstracts closed on 31st October 2018.
