The EFMC Yearbook 2016 is now available online!

At the beginning of this new year, we were pleased to send you the electronic version of the official EFMC Yearbook 2016, "Medicinal Chemistry in Europe", which represents a valuable instrument for those interested in quick finding information related to the activities and composition of EFMC and her Member Societies.

We invite you to have a look at the EFMC Yearbook 2016, to find out more on the framework and on EFMC's activities in 2016:

News From the Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)

The Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector (BMCS) of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) announces:

  • the 2016 and 2017 BMCS Lectureship
  • the 5th RSC / SCI symposium on Ion Channels as Therapeutic Targets - 14th-15th March 2016 at the Wellcome Trust Conference Centre, Cambridge, UK
  • the RSC / SCI symposium on Continuous Flow Technology III - 14th-16th March 2016 at Robinson College, Cambridge, UK
  • the 9th RSC BMCS Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Postgraduate Symposium at the Department of Chemistry, the University of Cambridge on 11th December 2015

2016 and 2017 BMCS Lectureship

Following its successful launch in 2014, the new call for the BMCS Lectureship attracted another very strong response. The next holders of the Lectureship will be Prof. Stuart Conway (University of Oxford) in 2016-2017 and Dr Jamie Scott (Astra Zeneca) in 2017-2018. Both lecturers will deliver about six lectures at UK universities and other institutions during the year, together with a public interest lecture at Burlington House.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT CHANNEL: 5th RSC / SCI symposium on Ion Channels as Therapeutic Targets - 14th-15th March 2016 at The Wellcome Trust Conference Centre, Cambridge, UK

The objective of the symposium is to showcase the most recent advances in ion channel science and to promote scientific interaction between scientists with a shared interest in the field of ion channel drug discovery.

GO WITH THE FLOW!: RSC / SCI symposium on Continuous Flow Technology III - 14th-16th March 2016 at Robinson College, Cambridge, UK

The meeting is directed at individuals with a curiosity into what Flow is and how it may benefit them or their organisations (covering aspects from microfluidics to production scale manufacture) and those people already involved in the area (by highlighting the latest developments and cutting edge research to further stimulate activity).
