June 19-22, 2022Santiago de Compostela, Spain



The Organizing Committee of the "XX National Meeting of the Spanish Society of Medicinal Chemistry(SEQT), in consultation with the SEQT board, regret to announce that due to the exceptional circumstances facing all of us, it will no longer be possible to hold the Congress on January 23-26, 2022 in Santiago de Compostela.

Even if holding the congress in hybrid format or virtually has been considered, the interaction with colleagues around Spain and Europe is the key part of the Congress, it was felt that the best option was to postpone the congress until June 2022

Please note that this modification only affects the dates, so the general program, lectures as well as posters and (oral or flash) communications will, in principle, remain unchanged. We will contact you shortly to define details related to the new dates.

The organizing committee and the SEQT Board thank you in advance for your patience, comprehension, and collaboration.

July 6-7, 2022Online event

The second Transatlantic ECI GPCR symposium is a 2-day event aimed at Early Career Investigators. The symposium seeks to promote collaboration among early-career scientists in the GPCR field and to transfer the experience of more established researchers to ECIs to guide their future careers.

This 2-day symposium will provide opportunities for postdoctoral scientists and graduate students to present their research to an international community in a virtual format and to participate in diverse sessions aiming to inspire and guide their future career and research. All attending ECIs can actively participate by presenting posters or oral presentations, asking questions during the career panel and get in touch with GPCR leaders during lunch sessions (or breakfast/ dinner depending on individual timezone).

Kenote Speakers: 

  • David E. Olson (UC Davis)
  • Miriam Stoeber (University of Geneva
  • Registration deadline is July 5, 2022
