To celebrate its golden jubilee, the EFMC has commissioned a series of articles charting its history, activities and future directions. We are most grateful to ChemMedChem for its support and publishing these articles.
With the contribution of Henk Timmerman in collecting his "Memoirs of the First 50 Years of the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry" and the extraordinary archivist efforts of Edmond Differding to gather and write both:
- "50 Years European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) – The Ascent of Medicinal Chemistry in Europe"
- "Trends in Drug Discovery over Five Decades – The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC−ISMC)"
The EFMC is now able to look with pride over its history.
