June 10-13, 2023Boston, United States

The ACSMEDI|EFMC Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers is co-organised as a collaboration between the ACS (American Chemical Society) MEDI (Division of Medicinal Chemistry) and the EFMC (European Federation for Medicinal chemistry and Chemical biology).

The Program will include:

  • 3 high quality plenary lectures.
  • 9 sessions on key topics in Medicinal Chemistry.
  • An extensive social program to maximise your networking opportunities
  • Poster session and an exhibition.

The ACSMEDI|EFMC Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers Meeting attracts a highly targeted audience composed of experts, researchers and early career trainees in drug discovery and development, in particular medicinal and synthetic chemists, together with scientists active in the fields of computer assisted drug design, biology, DMPK, pharmacology, and early toxicology.
