EFMC Short Course 2018
April 22-25, 2018 Oegsgeest (near Leiden), The Netherlands
In 2018, 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 2018 Course on “Peptide Therapeutics: Inspiring Beacon of Hope for the Pharmaceutical Future” is scheduled for April 22-25, 2018 and will be organised by Bart de Spiegeleer (Ghent University, BE)
This EFMC seminar will bring together enthusiastic, approachable experts on selected hot aspects in the discovery and development of peptide therapeutics. Real life examples and interactive discussions will give the participants a unique opportunity to learn in a short time how the challenges in peptide therapeutics can be handled and overcome.

XXV EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC 2018)
September 2-6, 2018 Ljubljana, Slovenia
The XXV EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC 2018) will be organised by the Section for Medicinal Chemistry of the Slovenian Pharmaceutical Society (SFD), on behalf of the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC).
The 2018 edition will continue the tradition established by these biennial symposia of covering drug discovery advances in major therapeutic areas, including the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, infectious diseases including fungal infections, cardiometabolic diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and oncology. EFMC-ISMC 2018 will present the most recent advances in up-to-date topics like protein degradation, STING pathway, kinetics and pharmacokinetics of drug binding and PET imaging, and will tackle some out-of-the-box areas of Medicinal Chemistry including carbohydrate-based vaccines and new chemical modalities, while Chemical Biology approaches to target identification will cover the interfaces between chemistry, biology and experimental medicine. Particular emphasis will be put on first time disclosures, recent highlights in medicinal chemistry, and the impact of artificial intelligence in drug discovery.
