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.

For the time being, the plan is to offer a virtual meeting, hosted at Churchill College in Cambridge. It is hoped that there may be an option for face-to-face attendance for a limited number, and a decision on this will be made at a later date.

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. To enable presenters to receive approval from their institutions there will be early and final submission dates - 30th April and 23rd July 2021.

Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunities
Exhibition opportunities will be available, and details of the package(s) will be publicised shortly. Sponsors are encouraged to support this event.
