EFMC Sponsored Events are scientific events or post-graduate educational activities related to Medicinal Chemistry or Chemical Biology organised by EFMC national adhering organisations*, EFMC partner organisations, non-for-profit associations or scientific committees.

Applications for sponsorship should be done by sending the below form to the EFMC Administrative Secretariat (administration@efmc.info), at least three months prior to the event for both physical and online events. In case of smaller online events, we will accept requests up to a month prior to the event.
Sponsorship applications will be considered by the EFMC Executive Committee before approval. Sponsorship will not be granted to events overlapping with EFMC organised events.

*EFMC national adhering organisations are granted EFMC sponsorships at no costs, provided the event fulfills the requirements.

18th Hellenic Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (HSMC-18) is organized by the Hellenic Society of Medicinal Chemistry (HSMC).

It continues the tradition of biannual meetings established since 35 years in Greece as a forum for the discussion of recent advances in medicinal chemistry. The topics include drug design and lead identification and optimization, protein-protein interactions and protein degradation, ADME/Tox properties, advances in Synthetic Medicinal Chemistry, Natural Products, Pharmacology as well as the impact of artificial intelligence in the integration of data- intensive practices to Drug Discovery.

Under this multidisciplinary research umbrella the  major therapeutic areas, such as treatment of inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and oncology will be discussed. Sections on Pharmaceutical Analysis will be integrated in the symposium program.

Deadline for Oral Communication submission: January 29, 2021

Deadline for Poster Presentation submission: February 5, 2021

Cell surface transporters play a key role in human health and disease, both through their impact on drug disposition and as therapeutic targets in their own right. This third meeting in the series will feature talks on transporter structural biology, the impact of transporters on ADME and biodistribution, transporters as therapeutic targets and other aspects of transporters relevant to drug discovery and development. 

Bringing together leading exponents in the field from industry and academia, the meeting will appeal to medicinal chemists, DMPK scientists and other workers interested in the impact of transporters on human health.

November 19, 2021Liege, Belgium

The Medicinal Chemistry Divisions of the two Belgian Chemical Societies, the Société Royale de Chimie (SRC) and the Koninklijke Vlaamse Chemische Vereniging (KVCV), are organising every year an international one-day symposium with the aim to update participants on selected areas of pharmaceutical research by specialists in their respective field.

MedChem 2020 will be held on Friday November 19, 2021, in Liège. The programme of the day will include 12 invited lectures and a poster session.

This year, the symposium will celebrate the 50th birthday of the Medicinal Chemistry division of the SRC and of the precursor association of today’s Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry division of the KVCV. On that special occasion, 12 speakers from 8 Belgian academic groups and 4 Belgian industries will provide an overview of cutting-edge research activities carried out in the country.  Through high quality talks and a variety of innovative themes, the symposium will highlight the current vibrancy of Belgian medicinal chemistry and its bright future.
