  • Italian-Spanish-Portuguese Joint Meeting in Medicinal Chemistry “MedChemSicily2018”

    July 17-20, 2018   Palermo, Italy

    The Italian Medicinal Chemistry division, together with the Spanish and Portuguese medicinal chemistry communities, will organize the Italian-Spanish-Portuguese Joint Meeting in Medicinal Chemistry “MedChemSicily2018”. Palermo, the main city of Sicily rich in history, culture, art, and food, will host the joint meeting from the 17th to 20th of July, 2018. The conference follows similar events, started in 1989 in Granada (1er Congreso Conjunto Hispano-Italiano de Quimica Terapeutica), and then held in 1995 in Ferrara (II Congreso Conjunto Italiano-EspaDol de Quimica Terapeutica), and in 2015 in Barcelona (Spanish-Italian Medicinal Chemistry Congress -SIMCC-2015). As a novelty of the 2018 conference edition, the Portuguese Medicinal Chemistry Society will join Italian and Spanish communities in organizing the event. The following scientists have already accepted to deliver a plenary lecture at the joint meeting: Erick Carreira (ETH Zurich, Switzerland), Ben Davis (University of Oxford, UK), Hervè Galons (University of Paris Descartes, France), and Herbert Waldmann (University of Dortmund, Germany).

    The meeting will coincide with the 25th NMMC & 11th Young Medicinal Chemists Symposium “Nuove Prospettive in Chimica Farmaceutica” (NPCF11). It will be aimed to provide a panel of scientists to interact and discuss the latest ideas, scientific breakthroughs and techniques. The meeting will also offer an exciting chance to debate future changes and to provide topical coverage of key disciplines, and to explore for cooperation and collaborations..

    The scientific programme will include:

    • three days of scientific presentations
    • plenary lectures of eminent international scientists
    • ten parallel oral sessions with keynotes and short communications of distinguished scientists from Italy and abroad (expected attendance of over 400 delegates from Italy and other European countries, both University and Industry)
    • poster sessions
    • an exhibition by companies working in the field
