EFMC International Symposium on Chemical Biology

MedChem Campus 2023, October 10-11, 2023  21/09/2023

The Tübingen Center for Academic Drug Discovery (TüCAD2), founded 2012, is part of the University’s excellence strategy. TüCAD2 is closely connected to the Excellence Cluster iFIT, ICEPHA (Interfaculty Center for Pharmacogenomics) and recently to NCT-SW (Nationales Zentrum für Tumorerkrankungen-SüdWest) and focus on pharmacological validation of genetically identified targets. The strong translational focus brought four compounds until now “first into human”.

As a graduate/postgraduate teaching aspect, TüCAD2 organizes since 2019 a curriculum covering advanced medchem, preclinical development and fundraising aspects. As a new format, we will start now with a one-day event with case studies, presented by eminent drug discovery experts from both industry and academia.

EFMC-ACSMEDI Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers, April 8-11 2024 (Utrecht)  21/09/2023

The EFMC | ACSMEDI Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers is co-organised as a collaboration between the EFMC (European Federation for Medicinal chemistry and Chemical biology) and the ACS (American Chemical Society) MEDI (Division of Medicinal Chemistry).

The program will include:

  • 3 high quality plenary lectures.
  • 9 sessions on key topics in Medicinal Chemistry.
  • About 18 oral communications selected from the submitted abstracts
  • An extensive social program to maximise your networking opportunities
  • A poster session and an exhibition.

The EFMC | ACSMEDI Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers Meeting attracts a highly targeted audience composed of experts, researchers and early career trainees in drug discovery and development, in particular medicinal and synthetic chemists, together with scientists active in the fields of computer assisted drug design, biology, DMPK, pharmacology, and early toxicology.
