28th Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry in Eastern England

27 April 2017 09:00-17:00, Hatfield, United Kingdom

The symposium on Medicinal Chemistry in Eastern England is a highly successful, long-standing, one-day meeting which runs annually. The symposium, known colloquially as the "Hatfield MedChem" meeting, will comprise presentations covering various aspects of drug discovery, including medicinal chemistry case studies and SBDD, as well as more general topics related to medicinal chemistry and drug discovery. The meeting will be applicable to all those working in medicinal chemistry and drug discovery. In addition, the meeting will offer excellent networking opportunities.

The relevant trade exhibition will add value to the symposium.  Exhibition stand space only is priced at £205 excluding any attendees. The exhibition will be held in the same room as the catering (refreshments and lunch), and details of the exhibition package may be found on the event website.  The exhibition consistently sells out, so early booking is recommended.
