  • Protein-Protein Interactions 2019

    April 4-5, 2019   Leeds, United Kingdom

    Virtually all vital cellular processes are controlled by protein-protein interactions (PPIs), including gene expression, proliferation, intracellular communication and apoptosis. The understanding and manipulation of PPIs therefore plays an important role in fathoming the biology of healthy and diseased states. Achieving this goal will lead to new probes of cell signalling pathways or systems biology, and molecular therapeutics for addressing unmet medical need.

    To date, only a few PPIs have been the subject of drug discovery initiatives by the pharmaceuticals industry. Given the potential opportunities around modulating more of the estimated >650,000 PPIs, this field continues to generate considerable scientific interest, which has stimulated significant academic and industrial innovation. This meeting will address recent advances in the area. Topics will include: inducing protein degradation using small molecules, protein engineering and synthetic biology, integration of computational and experimental methods to study PPIs, characterisation and identification of new PPI inhibitors and lead optimization challenges for molecules targeting PPIs from case studies in drug discovery.Speakers from both industry and academia will describe strategies for addressing these challenges whilst showcasing the opportunity for creativity and innovation.

  • Bürgenstock Conference 2019

    May 5-9, 2019   Brunnen, Switzerland

    The ‘SCS Conference on Stereochemistry’, better known as ‘Bürgenstock Conference’, is an outstanding international chemistry meeting of high scientific quality, with an optimal setting for intense inter-disciplinary discussion.

    Stereochemistry is the principle underlying our understanding of the processes of life and the properties of matter at the molecular level. It is a key element not only in all chemical disciplines, but also in modern molecular biology, molecular medicine, biophysics, and material design. Accordingly, the ‘Bürgenstock Conference’ has grown over the years into a multi-disciplinary conference where frontier science is being discussed. Lectures cover many areas of chemistry and relevant highlights from neighboring disciplines.

    According to its long tradition, the 54th Bürgenstock Conference 2019 will again be interdisciplinary, covering many areas of chemistry in its main body, but allowing also for relevant highlights from neighboring disciplines, with due focus on structural and mechanistic aspects in all contributions.

  • Better Leads, Better Drugs - Innovation in Screening Libraries

    May 8-9, 2019   Boston, United States

    The Academic Drug Discovery Consortium invites you to hear about the latest ideas in small-molecule library development at, Better Leads, Better Drugs: Innovations in Screening Libraries. 

    Scientists engaged in drug discovery and chemical biology know that a screen is only as good as the molecules that go into it. But with the vast potential chemical space, how do you decide what to include in your virtual, high-throughput, or fragment-based screens? This event will bring together drug-seekers from academia and industry focused on the application of new technologies and computational tools to tackle this question in order to deliver higher quality leads.

  • 39th Edition of the European School of Medicinal Chemistry (ESMEC)

    June 30-July 4, 2019   Urbino, Italy

    The mission of the ESMEC is to provide participants, PhD students and junior researchers from both academia and industry, with the most recent advances in the field of medicinal and organic chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology and analytical/ structural chemistry. This idea is aimed to reflect the current scenario of medicinal chemistry being a truly transdisciplinary approach, where the advances in knowledge are driven by the medicinal chemist’s ability to translate into new molecular concepts and into novel molecular entities the amount of information created by molecular medicine, pharmacology, molecular biology, systems biology.

    For these reasons, the School is directed to participants at a graduated and post-graduated level, in chemistry but also in pharmacology or biology, who are keen to explore the interdisciplinary context of current cutting-edge research in medicinal chemistry.

    To achieve these very ambitious goals, the School is organized into thematic sessions, each of them constructed around a series of lectures, followed by practical workshops.

    This year the scientific programme includes the following topics:

    • Immuno-oncology: small molecules and beyond
    • Photocatalysis in Medicinal Chemistry
    • Artificial Intelligence in drug discovery and development
    • Market watch: new drug approvals in 2018 and synthetic strategies
  • 50th General Assembly & 47th IUPAC World Chemistry Congress: "Frontiers in Chemistry: Let’s create our Future!100 years with IUPAC"

    July 5-12, 2019   Paris, France

    This IUPAC-2019 Congress and the joint 50th General Assembly will present an exceptional character as both will celebrate the Centenary of the Union. Special events will be organized all week long, encompassing a Celebration plenary session organized together with the IUPAC100 Committee, a celebratory evening organized by the Young Scientists at the Maison de la Chimie, the Celebration gala dinner, and an official Ceremony organized at the Sorbonne in presence of the French authorities, IUPAC Council, NAOs diplomatic delegations and prestigious scientists and guests.

    The programme of such a general Congress was built to merge the different fields of chemistry and to address today’s most challenging issues relevant to human well-being and sustainable development but it remains broad enough to welcome every contribution whatever the domain of research or the academic and industrial origins. It has been reviewed by a worldwide panel of recognized scientists. Furthermore, dedicated symposia will consider the educational, historical, gender, and other timely aspects, together with the very sensitive question of Chemistry and Society. A dense Young Scientists programme is also planned throughout the week.

    Some 30 Symposia are offered, with multiple half-day sessions co-organized by teams of Foreign and French scientists.
