Many years have elapsed since the constitution of the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry on December 1969. As an acknowledgment to all the people who have contributed to our community with their work, commitment and ideas, we present here the History of EFMC. This is a collection of articles originally written by Henk Timmerman and published in MedChemWatch. For those who are also interested in the chronology of the EFMC and of the EFMC organized symposia (ISMC), here it is a synopsis compiled by Edmond Differding.
An extended version of the EFMC History, compiling and completing the above content will soon be published in ChemMedChem.
