  • 2nd RSC / SCI Fibrosis Medicinal Chemistry Conference

    November 10, 2017   SCI, London, UK

    Fibrosis disease is the result of a dysregulated wound healing process and is responsible for considerable patient mortality affecting multiple organs in diseases such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), diabetic nephropathy, steatohepatitis and systemic sclerosis. Fibrosis disease pathology is often complex and this inaugural symposium on fibrosis will provide mechanistic insight and progress in medicinal chemistry and drug discovery from experts across the world.

  • SCT - Fall One-Day Symposium - Chemical Biology: Contribution to Molecular Therapeutic Innovation

    December 7, 2017   MAS, Paris, France

    The aim of the symposium is to illustrate the great potential and the applications of conjugates in contributing to therapeutic innovation.
     
    This meeting is dedicated to a large audience of organic and medicinal chemists, biochemists and biologists, and covers recent advances in the field of conjugates for therapeutic approaches, focusing on their preparation, evaluation and applications.
     
    Recent development of conjugates offers new promises for the treatment of various diseases. In oncology, two antibody-drug conjugates (brentuximab vedotin and trastuzumab emtansine) are already approved for clinical use, and numerous conjugates are still in clinical evaluation. In addition to antibodies, other classes of vehicles like proteins, peptides, vitamins and polymers have been investigated for the selective delivery of drugs to malignant tissues. Conjugates also emerge for the development of new vaccines or appear as powerful tools to explore or manipulate living systems in chemical biology approaches.
