  • 1st Alpine Winter Conference on Medicinal and Synthetic Chemistry

    January 28 - February 1, 2018    St Anton, Austria

    The “Alpine Winter Conference on Medicinal and Synthetic Chemistry” exposes attending scientists to cutting edge synthetic and medicinal chemistry as well as latest developments in technologies that foster innovation in drug discovery. The main target audience for this highly interdisciplinary meeting will include medicinal and synthetic chemists, as well as related drug discovery disciplines from both industry and academia as well as graduate/undergraduate students and postdocs.

    In the spirit of Keystone and Gordon conferences as well as the MBCF (Medicinal and Bioorganic Chemistry Foundation) conference in Steamboat Springs, the format of this meeting provides ample opportunity for attendees to informally interact. The aim is to strengthen existing networks and create new contacts.

    The Conference topics will include:

    • Addressing Preclinical Toxicity – Approaches and Lessons Learned (with panel discussion)
    • Advances in Lead Generation
    • Advances in Synthetic Methods
    • Alternative Modalities
    • Challenges and Opportunities in Fragment Based Drug Discovery
    • Chemical Biology in Drug and Target Discovery
    • Late Stage Functionalization

    Full programme and list of speakers are now available.

    Deadline for abstract submission for poster: November 20, 2017
