Challenges in Chemical Biology (ISACS11)

23 - 26 July 2013, Boston, United States

Challenges in Chemical Biology was the second event in the International Symposia on Advancing the Chemical Sciences (ISACS) series in 2013. Building upon the success of ISACS 5: Challenges in Chemical Biology, which took place in 2011, the meeting brought together leading scientists from across the world to discuss the latest applications of chemical tools and techniques for probing biological problems.

The conference took place at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Scientific Committee warmly invited delegates to take part in ISACS 11 in Boston.


The conference brought together exceptional researchers - all leading names in their field - for an outstanding plenary programme, complemented by contributed talks, together with extensive poster sessions that provided many networking opportunities.
