  • Computers for Medicinal Chemistry: Applying Nobel Prize Science to Drug Discovery?

    March 28, 2014   Utrecht, the Netherlands

    The 2013 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to three computational chemists, Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel. They integrated Newton’s classical physics with quantum physics to simulate chemistry behavior, simple if possible, more elaborate when needed. For example, quantum theoretical calculations are performed on those atoms in the target protein that interact with a drug, whereas the rest of the protein is simulated using less demanding molecular mechanics principles.
    The Nobel Prize Committee concluded: “Today, the computer is just as important a tool for chemists as the test tube. Simulations are so realistic that they predict the outcome of traditional experiments.” Well, some may question this statement, as calculations tend to be rather poor when it comes to predicting e.g., protein flexibility, or the actual affinity of a drug for its target. Others even doubt the actual value of computer methods in drug discovery, and wonder how much they have contributed to the development of a ‘real drug’.
    So, it’s about time to address the benefits and limitations of computer-aided medicinal chemistry during a one-day symposium organised by the Section of Medicinal Chemistry of the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society.

  • Annual One-Day Meeting on Medicinal Chemistry of KVCV & SRC

    November 22, 2013   Belgium

    Contact person: Koen Augustyns

    Event date to be determined

  • Annual One-Day Meeting on Medicinal Chemistry of SRC & KVCV

    November 22, 2013   Beerse, Belgium

    The Medicinal Chemistry Divisions of the two Belgian Chemical Societies, Koninklijke Vlaamse Chemische Vereniging (KVCV) and Société Royale de Chimie (SRC) are organising every year an international one day symposium in Belgium, with the aim to update participants on selected areas of pharmaceutical research by specialists in their respective field.

    In recent years, this symposium has been focussing on topics such as “From Rapid Dissociation to Irreversible Inhibition – Optimisation of Drug-Target Residence Time” (2012); “Emerging Targets and Treatments: Opportunities and Challenges for Drug Design” (2011); “Does size matter? Beyond small molecule therapeutics: challenges and success stories“ (2009); “Small molecules, Antibodies and Natural Products: Multiple Faces of Medicinal Chemistry” (2008); or “New Drugs and Drug Candidates: Recent Achievements in Medicinal Chemistry (2007)”; and has been gathering every year around 170 participants, half from universities, half from industry, both from Belgium and surrounding countries.

    MedChem 2013, with six invited lectures and three oral communications, will be held on Friday November 22, 2013, at the Janssen Pharmaceutica site in Beerse and will be chaired by Dr Lieven Meerpoel (Janssen Pharmaceutica, Belgium). The title and focus of the symposium will be “Constrained Peptides and Macrocycles – New Opportunities for Drug Discovery”.

    The objective of this one-day symposium is to address the opportunities and challenges offered by the field of constrained peptides and therapeutics. These molecules are generally defined as cyclic small molecules or peptides of 500 - 2000 Da. They have undergone a rebirth over the last years in drug discovery, mainly due to the introduction of new approaches for their synthesis and screening and the promise of access to previously undruggable targets. The symposium will cover recent approaches in this promising field that is highly inspired by model macrocyclic drugs such as cyclosporine, a highly successful immunosuppressant.

  • EFMC Session on Drug Discovery in the field of Epigenetics at the 9th AFMC International Medicinal Chemistry Symposium (AIMECS13)

    October 15-18, 2013   Taipei, Taiwan

    AIMEC is authorized by AFMC, who has been a rapidly developing and most attractive scientific activity in the Asia-pacific region. Since first gathering in Japan in 1997, it has been 8 times held regularly and become one of the most important international events in the field of medicinal chemistry. To receive and carry on this mission, it is a great honor that the Taiwan is appointed to host the 9th AIMECS in 2013.

    For the past years, AIMEC has been making a great evolution on advancing the science of medicinal chemistry. To continue the object from the past symposia, the AIMECS13 in Taiwan is focusing on “Developing New Drugs to Make This World Preferable” and to discuss the interaction and ideal concept between pharmaceutical production and chemistry. This unique platform is going to provide a great opportunity for medicinal chemists to stimulate and exchange the most up-to-date science knowledge. And also to carry on the goal of AIMECS to keep making great contribution and development to the medicine industry, discover and bring the better life to our world.

  • GPCR Medicinal Chemistry & Structural Biology

    June 24-25, 2013   Amsterdam, the Netherlands

    This symposium in Amsterdam will be dedicated to some general developments in modern Medicinal Chemistry and have a strong focus on the recent developments in the GPCR field. The symposium is organised  on the other hand to celebrate the fact that on June 17 this year it will be the 100th anniversary of Wijbe Nauta's birthday, the founder of  our department at the VU University Amsterdam. Professor Nauta has been instrumental to introduce Medicinal Chemistry as an independent  branch of chemistry in The Netherlands and subsequently in Europe. His special contributions to medicinal chemistry concern especially the classical antihistamines. He was an advocate of the idea that medicinal chemistry can only flourish when it is executed in what he called an integrated way. As an eye-catching result of this approach in the sixties he suggested  that "receptors" could be "proteins in a helix shape". Most likely his paper (1968) in which he proposed this, has been the first in which a receptor was presented as such, complete with an imaginative drawing.

  • 31th Edition of the European School of Medicinal Chemistry (ESMEC)

    July 3-8, 2011   Urbino, Italy

    The mission of the ESMEC is to provide participants, PhD students and junior researchers from both academia and industry, with the most recent advances in the field of medicinal and organic chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology and analytical/ structural chemistry. This idea is aimed to reflect the current scenario of medicinal chemistry being a truly transdisciplinary approach, where the advances in knowledge are driven by the medicinal chemist’s ability to translate into new molecular concepts and into novel molecular entities the amount of information created by molecular medicine, pharmacology, molecular biology, systems biology. 

    For these reasons, the School is directed to participants at a graduated and post-graduated level, in chemistry but also in pharmacology or biology, who are keen to explore the interdisciplinary context of current cutting-edge research in medicinal chemistry. To achieve these very ambitious goals, the School is organized into thematic sessions, each of them constructed around a series of lectures, followed by practical workshops.

    The Second INFOBIOMED Training Challenge follows an innovative format that will gather two groups of five students with different backgrounds (bioinformatics, medical informatics, biology, medicine, chemistry, etc. ) that will be working together in a case study that will benefit from an integrative approach.

    Pharmainformatics will be the broad theme of this edition. Each student is required to submit a motivated case study upon application and among the case studies proposed, the organizing committee will select one case study per group, according to the potential it offers for cross-discipline approaches.

    Students will be lodged in a hotel in Viladrau, 80 km from Barcelona. The student expenses will be covered by the INFOBIOMED project. The application deadline is 24th of March 2006. The application form can be found on the Second INFOBIOMED Training challenge webpage. http://www.infobiomed.org
