This major international symposium will gather more than 450 scientists from around the world at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy in Poitiers.
The scientific programme, which will include over 25 plenary lectures by internationally well-known scientists, focuses on "Interfacing Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery", covering the main stages of modern drug discovery:
1. Targets - Pathways
2. Non Classical Drugs
3. Novel Approaches - New Tools/Platforms
4. Future Targeted Therapies
5. Exploring Chemical Space
6. Case Studies
The scientific committee ensures the high quality and diversity of the scientific programme together with the accessibility of the meeting to MSc and PhD students. For the latter, an advantageous registration fee will be proposed. Moreover, a special career session will be organised with industrial and academic participants.
During the meeting the traditional prizes (P. Ehrlich Lecture Award and C. Mentzer Prize) of the ‘Société de Chimie Thérapeutique’ will be awarded to researchers or research teams for their outstanding contributions to medicinal chemistry.
In addition, a poster session will provide the opportunity for all participants to present their current results. A “best poster” prize will also be attributed.
Iris Biotech GmbH will be present during the talks and supports the organisation with a booth at the exhibition. We are pleased to get in personal contact with you.
