A message from EFMC, to all Medicinal Chemists and Chemical Biologists

The chemistry community still faces attitudes of discrimination that affects people’s careers and lives, and adversely affects working environments in many institutions.

EFMC actively promotes equal opportunities, honesty, fairness, transparency, and aims at an inclusive representation of all its members in its activities. It acts with the highest degree of professionalism and ethical values, stands up for the principles it promotes, and strives to have a positive influence in the scientific community. It encourages diversity of views, and participation in its initiatives and scientific events independently of gender, nationality, personal characteristics or circumstances.

EFMC is committed to promote diversity and inclusion, and invites the medicinal chemistry and chemical biology community to support our position on these issues.
