15 - 18 June 2015, Zurich, Switzerland

Registration is now open!


Challenges in Chemical Biology: ISAC16 will bring together world-leading experts from several disciplines under the broad subject of chemical biology. The diverse subject scope will provide a broad overview of some of the key challenges within cutting edge areas of chemical biology with many opportunities for networking. This meeting follows the successful ISACS5 and ISACS11 conferences held in Manchester, UK in 2011 and Boston, USA in 2013, respectively.

The conference will take place at ETH, Zurich and the Scientific Committee warmly invites you to take part in ISACS16.


Our hope is that delegates will be exposed to new areas of research, encouraging the cross fertilization of ideas. There will be extensive poster sessions in the evening and questions after each talk.
