Have you ever wondered how medicinal chemists work in other companies or in academia? Are there important trends or new technologies that you may have missed?
In the rapidly evolving field of Medicinal Chemistry, there are only few opportunities to share best practices among industry and academic practitioners. We can of course learn from case studies presented at conferences but wouldn’t it be great to also have material covering more general concepts? Following the initiative of Jean Quancard, the EFMC assembled a team of experienced practitioners from industry and academia. We are now addressing this exciting challenge.
The material we will assemble will be spread through various formats: freely accessible webinars on the EFMC youtube channel, presentations at EFMC meetings, educational slide decks for distribution and teaching. These will be made freely accessible for personal use or for use in further course material.
It’s with great pleasure that we release the first of our series on Best Practices in Medicinal Chemistry.
This one is dedicated to “validating chemical probes”. High quality chemical probes are essential to explore human biology and diseases and as chemists, we have a big role to play to ensure high quality of the published probes.

We also need your help!
Please contact us if you have interesting case studies relevant to the topics we are covering. These would help illustrate these concepts with additional recent examples and spread best practices through the Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology communities
