The BMCS Mastering MedChem V

13 March 2019 09:15-17:45, Windlesham, United Kingdom

Mastering Medicinal Chemistry V is the latest in an ongoing series of conferences intended to provide expert advice and guidance to new practitioners in the field of drug discovery.  It has been said that "there are two types of drug discovery programmes: those that hit serious problems and those that are going to hit serious problems".   
Anticipating and preparing for such problems thus accelerates the delivery of new medicines: this event will feature presentations from experienced 'drug-hunters' in both industry and academia, who will talk about the challenges faced in modern drug discovery, and will share the good practices common to all successful medicinal chemists.

Features of the Meeting
The meeting will include:
• Live webcast for RSC-BMCS members only
• Full sound and vision recording for internet upload (RSC-BMCS members only)
• Wine mixer at the end of the day
• Relevant trade exhibition
• Poster display throughout the meeting

Confirmed Speakers
Prof Lennart Bunch, University of Copenhagen
Dr Nicole Hamblin, Charles River

Call for Posters
Posters are invited for display throughout the meeting. The closing date for abstract submission is 20th February.

Registration, Students and Bursaries
Registration will open in Autumn, and fees will be competitively priced. Reduced-price fees will be available for undergraduate and post-graduate students, and some student bursaries will be available (closing date 14th February).
Those companies wishing to exhibit should apply early to avoid disappointment as space will be limited.
