2nd RSC Symposium on Chemical Biology for Drug Discovery

20 - 21 March 2012, AstraZeneca, Macclesfield

This symposium covered progress in the interdisciplinary field of Chemical Biology in enhancing our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of human biology in health and disease. 

Topics included discovery and use of chemical probes, chemical modification of biological molecules, in-cell protein labelling, carbohydrate therapeutics and biomarkers, and the study of protein-protein interactions. 

This meeting included chemists and biologists from across the academic and industrial sectors interested in harnessing chemical science to answer fundamental questions in biology.

The programme and some presentations are available here to download.
