  • 3rd Russian Conference on Medicinal Chemistry

    September 25-28, 2017    Kazan, Russia

    MedChem Russia conferences are held every 2 years in large educational, scientific and cultural centers of Russia. The first MedChem Russia conference took place in Moscow in 2013; the second event was held in 2015 in Novosibirsk. The main focus of this international conference series is to review current developments, novel approaches and cutting-edge technologies in the field of medicinal chemistry and drug research.

    The scientific program of MedChem Russia 2017 will include plenary lectures, short lectures, and poster presentations. Furthermore, oral and poster communications of junior scientists will be considered during a satellite young scientists’ symposium. In addition to scientific presentations, there will be dedicated times for networking among delegates. It is the goal of the organizers to make this meeting an event of scientific excellence, attractive to both industrial and academic scientists in medicinal chemistry and related fields of research.

    The scientific program will cover the following topics:

    • New developments in drug discovery;
    • Novel synthetic and technological approaches in medicinal chemistry;
    • Predictive tools, virtual screening, bio- and cheminformatics;
    • ADME/Tox and drug delivery;
    • Biopharmaceuticals design;
    • Metal-based drugs;
    • Educational programs in medicinal chemistry.

  • 1st Alpine Winter Conference on Medicinal and Synthetic Chemistry

    January 28 - February 1, 2018    St Anton, Austria

    The “Alpine Winter Conference on Medicinal and Synthetic Chemistry” exposes attending scientists to cutting edge synthetic and medicinal chemistry as well as latest developments in technologies that foster innovation in drug discovery. The main target audience for this highly interdisciplinary meeting will include medicinal and synthetic chemists, as well as related drug discovery disciplines from both industry and academia as well as graduate/undergraduate students and postdocs.

    In the spirit of Keystone and Gordon conferences as well as the MBCF (Medicinal and Bioorganic Chemistry Foundation) conference in Steamboat Springs, the format of this meeting provides ample opportunity for attendees to informally interact. The aim is to strengthen existing networks and create new contacts.

    The Conference topics will include:

    • Addressing Preclinical Toxicity – Approaches and Lessons Learned (with panel discussion)
    • Advances in Lead Generation
    • Advances in Synthetic Methods
    • Alternative Modalities
    • Challenges and Opportunities in Fragment Based Drug Discovery
    • Chemical Biology in Drug and Target Discovery
