EMBO Conference on Chemical Biology 2016 Heidelberg

  • Conference Call
  • The EMBO Con­fer­ence on Chem­i­cal Biol­ogy 2016 will be organ­ised by the Euro­pean Mol­e­c­u­lar Biol­ogy Lab­o­ra­tory (EMBL) in Hei­del­berg, Ger­many on August 31Sep­tem­ber 3, 2016. This con­fer­ence pro­vides a plat­form for the broad audi­ence in the field of chem­i­cal biol­ogy to inter­act. Over 300 par­tic­i­pants can meet the 22 speak­ers and other top researchers whilst at the same time dis­cussing their own data in three large poster ses­sions and ca. 15 short talks selected from the par­tic­i­pants. We aim to pro­vide the pos­si­bil­ity for every chem­i­cal biol­o­gist to meet and dis­cuss with peers, from tool devel­op­ment to bio­log­i­cal appli­ca­tions, from com­pu­ta­tional drug design to syn­thetic chem­istry. Most impor­tantly, par­tic­i­pants come to see where the field stands in its full breadth. The past meet­ings were very suc­cess­ful in this respect, ensur­ing that the EMBO Con­fer­ence on Chem­i­cal Biol­ogy remains the largest and broad­est meet­ing in this field.

    His­tory of this conference

    The con­fer­ence Chem­i­cal Biol­ogy 2010 was one of the first con­fer­ences held at the new Advanced Train­ing Cen­tre at EMBL Hei­del­berg. Due to the large suc­cess of the ini­tial con­fer­ences in 2008 and 2010 the fol­low­ing con­fer­ences in the bien­nial series became a mem­ber of the fam­ily of EMBO-​funded con­fer­ences. With about 25 invited speak­ers, 15 oral pre­sen­ta­tions cho­sen from the abstracts, 200 posters and over 300 par­tic­i­pants, this con­fer­ence series became a truly impres­sive suc­cess. The con­fer­ence report of Chem­i­cal Biol­ogy 2014 in Chem­BioChem is avail­able online.
