RSC BMCS and RSC NAG 2nd Nucleosides and Nucleotides: synthetic and biological chemistry

20 April 2021 09:15-18:00, United Kingdom

A virtual symposium

Nucleosides are key structures for current drug development and have established roles as antivirals and anticancer agents. Their (poly)phosphorylated nucleotide counterparts are critical tools for chemical biology and sequencing technologies. In recent years, nucleotides have also become fundamental building blocks for the preparation of altered genes and coding systems for synthetic biology. This meeting seeks to explore and celebrate the chemistry that drives the development of modern nucleoside and nucleotide chemistry. It will bring together scientists who work at the interfaces of synthetic and biological chemistry to deliver new tools and insights for biology, and new leads for drug development.

Features of the Meeting
• Synthetic methodologies for the preparation of nucleosides, nucleotides and related molecules
• Applications for nucleosides and nucleotides as medicines
• Applications of nucleosides and nucleotides as tools for chemical biology and synthetic biology
• Plenary speakers, poster session and trade exhibition

Call for Papers
Abstracts are invited for poster presentation. The abstract submission deadline is 10th March.

Registration is not yet open

A relevant trade exhibition will add value to the symposium. Further information about the exhibitor offering will be made available shortly, and the five exhibitors previously confirmed will be contacted again.

Sponsors are encouraged to support this second event. Please contact the secretariat for further information.
