EFMC Videoclip competition
Can you explain the importance of Medicinal Chemistry to the general public in just 1 minute? If you’re up to the challenge, you could win up to €500 in the EFMC’s Why Medicinal Chemistry video competition!
Medicinal chemists play a fundamental role in the discovery of novel drugs. By making a short video, you can highlight the importance of Medicinal Chemistry and contribute to increasing the awareness of the general public for our discipline. The closing date is 30 June 2015.
The winner and runner-ups will be announced in September 2015 and invited to the Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry 2015 Symposium for the award ceremony.

Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry Symposium
The Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry symposium is co-organised on a biennial basis, as a collaboration between the ACS (American Chemical Society) and the EFMC (European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry).
Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry 2015 will be jointly organised by EFMC, ACS and the local Dutch and Belgian organisers: the Medicinal and Bioorganic Chemistry Division of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (KVCV, Belgium), the Société Royale de Chimie (SRC, Belgium), and the Section Medicinal Chemistry of the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society (KNCV, The Netherlands).
The 2015 edition of the symposium will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, from September 14-16, 2015.

EFMC Short Courses
In 2015, EFMC will continue its tradition of organising Short Courses on Medicinal Chemistry, to favour cultural and scientific growth of the medicinal chemistry community and organised with affordable fees for participation.
The Fall Course on “Engineering of Biopharmaceuticals” is scheduled for September 27-30, 2015 and will be organised by Jesper Lau (Novo Nordisk, Denmark).
This intensive course is intended for scientists with interests in the field of peptide and protein engineering covering topics around synthetic peptides, engineered proteins and therapeutic antibodies.

6th EFMC International Symposium on Advances in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ASMC'15)
The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) and ChemBridge Corporation have been organising since 2004 the successful series of the International Symposium on Advances in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry. The first edition was held in Moscow, followed by St. Petersburg in 2007 and 2011, Kiev in 2009 and again Moscow in 2013.
The 6th EFMC International Symposium on Advances in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ASMC’15) is scheduled for November 15-18, 2015 and will be held in Rehovot, Israel, in combination with the 13th Annual Meeting of the Medicinal Chemistry Section of the Israel Chemical Society.
This symposium will bring together chemists from industry, academia and start-up companies from around the world and is centered on the most recent advances in new synthetic methodologies, total synthesis, organometallic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, drug discovery and development leading to new or improved methods for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals.
