19th RSC / SCI Medicinal Chemistry Symposium

10 September 2017 15:00 - 13 September 2017 16:00, Cambridge, United Kingdom

Reflecting current trends in medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical research, the scientific programme will feature lectures on the full range of drug targets, key enabling processes, and technologies together with late breaker talks.  Furthermore, one session will be dedicated to neglected tropical diseases including a planned live webcast that will be recorded for further distribution. We would encourage additional poster presentations dedicated to this subject and will include a flash poster event to further highlight this important area of medical research.

Call for Posters
Contributions from the whole field of medicinal chemistry are invited. Flash presentation sessions are planned which will involve a two-minute presentation of poster highlights. Poster abstract submissions should be sent to the secretariat by 16th April if you wish to take advantage of the early-bird registration fee and indicate whether or not you would like to be included for consideration in the flash presentation session. The final deadline for submission of posters is 21st July.

Who should attend
This conference will be of interest to both academic and industrial scientists engaged in all aspects of the drug discovery and development process. It aims to showcase first disclosures of significant new therapeutic agents across all disease areas, and provide a forum for discussion of current topics and thinking at the forefront of medicinal chemistry.
