POSTPONED: 3rd RSC / SCI / SEQT Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry for Global Health

24 June 2020 14:00 - 26 June 2020 16:00, Tres Cantos, Spain

Tuberculosis, malaria and diseases caused by a diverse range of pathogens, including flaviviruses (eg dengue, West Nile), kinetoplastids (causative agents of Chagas disease, leishmaniasis, etc) and gut pathogens (worms, bacteria, parasites), remain a cause of high mortality across the globe. Fortunately, an ever-improving understanding of the complex life-cycles of these disease-causing pathogens is presenting increasing opportunities for those seeking to tackle these global health problems.

This meeting will focus on medicinal chemistry approaches to developing new medicines for diseases affecting global health. Keynote talks from international experts from industry and academia, alongside perspectives detailing case histories in drug discovery, will highlight the latest developments in the field whilst also showcasing the opportunity for creativity and innovation. 

Who should attend?
Bringing together leading exponents for an exciting spread of themed sessions, the meeting will appeal to anyone with an interest in drug discovery and medicinal chemistry. And with great opportunities for collaborative academic-industrial partnerships and open innovation drug discovery programmes, researchers from both sectors will benefit from the networking opportunities that the meeting will also offer.

Call for Abstracts
Abstracts are invited for short oral presentations, and the final closing date for abstract submission is 24th April.  Early submission is encouraged because spaces are limited and speaker slots are being allocated on a case-by-case basis.
