Medicinal Chemistry Residential School 2022

5 - 10 June 2022, Loughborough, United Kingdom


Introduction
The Royal Society of Chemistry Medicinal Chemistry Residential School will cover topics of interest to drug discovery researchers, helping to increase understanding of the factors governing modern drug discovery from the initial concept through to translational science and intellectual property. Established since 1981, our Residential School has trained many of the world’s leading medicinal chemists working in the pharmaceutical industry and academic research institute.

Who should attend?

The school is designed for graduate and post-doctoral chemists with 1-5 years’ experience in the field of drug research. Drug discovery is an interdisciplinary subject so delegates from biological or computational backgrounds will benefit from attendance at the school.
In addition, final year PhD students from pharmaceutical or organic chemistry contemplating a career in drug discovery are also encouraged to attend.

Attendance

The RSC is keen to encourage and enable as many people as possible to attend our events, to benefit from the networking opportunities and the chance to hear talks from leaders in the field. If you have childcare, caring responsibilities or other care needs, and would like to attend this event, please do get in touch with us to see if there’s anything we can do to help enable you to attend.

Method and Structure

The 2022 Residential School will take place over 5 days and content is delivered by experts in the field from industry and academia. The programme includes lectures focusing on the fundamental principles of drug discovery, hands-on tutorials allowing delegates to put into practice what they have learnt and case histories from previous drug discovery projects. The programme will also include an evening lecture from a distinguished speaker.
Throughout the week course tutors and speakers will be available for informal discussion and there will be plenty of opportunities to network with the broad range of academic and industrial researchers in attendance.
