September 2-3, 2021Basel, Switzerland

The 8th edition will be organised in connection with the  XXVI EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC 2021), and will take place in Basel on September 2-3 2021. In the unfortunate event that the coronavirus outbreak still prevents physical meetings to take place, the symposium will be held virtually at the same date.  

The aims of the Young Medicinal Chemists' Symposium are:

  • creating a network of young European investigators in Medicinal Chemistry
  • stimulating young European investigators in medicinal chemistry to share their scientific work with peers and inspiring leaders in the field
  • creating competition and excellence in medicinal chemistry within Europe by selecting the European Champion in medicinal chemistry

The Programme of the 8th EFMC Young Medicinal Chemists’ Symposium will include:

  • keynote lectures given by inspiring leaders in the field
  • oral communications by invited prize winners from national young medicinal chemist meetings in Europe
  • flash poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts
  • a poster session open to any young researcher submitting an abstract
  • prizes
    • EFMC-YMCS Presentation Prize
    • EFMC-YMCS Poster Prize
    • EFMC-YMCS Public's Choice Prize

The EFMC Young Medicinal Chemists’ Symposium is an initiative of the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) and is open to any scientist interested by the topics related to medicinal chemistry and chemical biology.

Organised by:
  • Division for Medicinal Chemistry & Chemical Biology (DMCCB) (Switzerland)
  • European Federation of Medecinal Chemistry (EFMC)
