21st RSC / SCI Medicinal chemistry symposium

13 September 2021 09:00 - 15 September 2021 15:30, Cambridge, United Kingdom

The organisers invite you to the 21st RSC / SCI Medicinal Chemistry Symposium, Europe’s premier biennial Medicinal Chemistry event, focussing on first disclosures and new strategies in Medicinal Chemistry.

Programme and Attendees
Reflecting current trends in medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical research, the scientific programme will feature lectures on the full range of drug targets, key enabling processes and technologies together with late breaker talks. 

This conference will be of interest to both academic and industrial scientists engaged in all aspects of the drug discovery and development process.  It will aim to showcase first disclosures of significant new therapeutic agents across all disease areas, and provide a forum for discussion of current topics and thinking at the forefront of medicinal chemistry.

Call for Posters
A number of conference places will be reserved for poster presenters and contributions are invited from the whole field of medicinal chemistry. Those presenting a poster may also elect to advertise their poster via an oral presentation of a single-slide ‘flash’ poster. The final submission date is 23rd July 2021.

Registration is Open
Delegate registration fees for virtual attendance include attendance at the full technical programme.  Only one log-in link will be allocated to each registered delegate.

Format of Symposium
At the time of registration you will be asked whether you would like to be considered for face-to-face participation if the opportunity arose. It is the intent of the Organising Committee to offer in July a limited number of attendances in person for which additional registration fees will be added to the registration fees for virtual attendance. These additional charges below would cover three lunches and refreshments in all of the breaks.

£155   Delegate member
£175   Delegate non-member
£105   Student, unemployed & retired member
£115   Student non-member

If able to proceed with a face-to-face element the Organising Committee will select participants via a ballot* from delegates who have registered for the online event and confirmed that they are permitted to attend in person by their employer, where relevant. Bedrooms may be available in College, and attendees would book these direct with Churchill College.

*Selection of delegates will take diversity of the audience into account.

Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunities
An Exhibition Package is  available, and details of the package may be found on the event website. Sponsors are encouraged to support this event.  

Early-career Medicinal Chemistry Workshop

The updated workshop has been developed and facilitated by a cross-industry group of expert medicinal chemists and it will be run either before or after the symposium.  Early career* scientists attending the conference will have the opportunity to apply for a free place on this popular satellite event.
* Early career is defined as five years or fewer of post-graduate experience in medicinal chemistry.
