The BMCS Mastering MedChem VI

29 June 2021 00:00 - 30 June 2021, United Kingdom

A Virtual Symposium - Tuesday and Wednesday the 29th and 30th June, two afternoon sessions

Mastering Medicinal Chemistry VI 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 best practice common to all successful medicinal chemists.

• Two afternoon sessions
