  • 54th International Conference on Medicinal Chemistry (RICT 2018)

    July 4-6, 2018   Strasbourg, France

    The French Medicinal Chemistry Society (Société de Chimie Thérapeutique - SCT) is pleased to invite you to Strasbourg, France on July 4-6, 2018 for the 54th edition of the International Conference on Medicinal Chemistry (RICT 2018).

    The congress will be devoted to “Interfacing Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery”.


    1) New opportunities for metabolic and cardiovascular diseases

    • Exploring novel pathways for the next generation drugs
    • Non-small molecule approaches in metabolic & cardiovascular disorders

    2) New breakthroughs in GPCR structure, function and their impact on drug discovery

    • Exploring GPCR heterodimers as a source of drugs
    • New biophysics developments in GPCR structure and function

    3) New modalities for challenging targets in drug discovery

    • Exploring novel chemical space: scaffolds inspired by nature, conjugates, alternative scaffolds, oligonucleotides, macrocyclics and constrained peptides
    • Tackling biological targets from different angles: protein degradation (PROTAC)

    4) Chemical biology in drug discovery: visualizing biological processes

    • Imaging biological targets and cellular processes
    • Probing biological systems with small molecules

    5) Tackling challenges in drug delivery and formulation

    • Making the insoluble soluble
    • Novel solutions to stabilize & deliver peptides/proteins

    6) Case studies: from target validation to novel drugs (all therapeutic areas included)
