XXIII International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC-ISMC 2014) Lisbon

  • Conference Call
  • The XXIII Inter­na­tional Sym­po­sium on Med­i­c­i­nal Chem­istry (EFMC-​ISMC 2014) will be organ­ised by the Group of Med­i­c­i­nal Chem­istry of the Por­tuguese Chem­i­cal Soci­ety (SPQ) on behalf of the Euro­pean Fed­er­a­tion for Med­i­c­i­nal Chem­istry (EFMC). The sym­po­sium will take place at the Lis­bon Con­gress Cen­ter, Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal from Sep­tem­ber 7 – 11, 2014.

    The bien­nial “EFMC Inter­na­tional Sym­po­sium on Med­i­c­i­nal Chem­istry” (EFMC-​ISMC) is a key Sym­po­sium in its field and attracts tra­di­tion­ally between 1200 and 1400 par­tic­i­pants, from indus­try and acad­e­mia. Recent EFMC-​ISMC meet­ings have been organ­ised in dif­fer­ent coun­tries includ­ing Den­mark (Copenhagen/​Malmö, 2004), Turkey (Istan­bul, 2006), Aus­tria (Vienna, 2008), Bel­gium (Brus­sels, 2010) and the most recent one in Ger­many (Berlin, 2012).

    The 2014 edi­tion will con­tinue the tra­di­tion estab­lished by these bien­nial sym­posia and will cover drug dis­cov­ery advances in the major ther­a­peu­tic areas, includ­ing neglected dis­eases, CNS dis­or­ders, inflam­ma­tion, meta­bolic dis­or­ders, and oncol­ogy. EFMC-​ISMC 2014 will present the most recent advances in lead iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and opti­miza­tion strate­gies, drug design and pro­fil­ing tech­nolo­gies, and illus­trate the impact of bio­mark­ers and imag­ing at the inter­faces between chem­istry, biol­ogy and exper­i­men­tal med­i­cine. Par­tic­u­lar empha­sis will be put on first time dis­clo­sures, recent high­lights in med­i­c­i­nal chem­istry, and organic syn­the­sis which had a strong impact on med­i­c­i­nal chemistry.

    This sym­po­sium is recog­nised world­wide as one of the lead­ing Med­i­c­i­nal Chem­istry meet­ings, as proven by its large inter­na­tional attendance.
