8 September 2017 1st Molecules Medicinal Chemistry Symposium

Barcelona, Spain

The 1st Molecules Medicinal Chemistry Symposium (MMCS 2017) focuses on emerging drug discovery approaches against infectious diseases. The Symposium will be held at the School of Pharmacy and Food Sciences of the University of Barcelona (Spain) on September 8th, 2017.

The MMCS 2017 seeks to gather together experts in the field of medicinal chemistry of anti-infective agents, and aims to provide a forum for discussion regarding novel drug structural classes, therapeutic approaches, biological targets, and resistance mechanisms, which can pave the way for the development of optimized therapies against bacterial, protozoan, viral, and fungal infections.

Participants will have the opportunity to present their work, both as short talks and in poster sessions, to discuss their research in a relaxed and academic environment.


23–27 June 2017 Computational and Single-Molecule Biophysics

Peking University Beijing, China

The Center for Quantitative Biology (CQB) at Peking University has been organizing annual meetings in diverse topics of quantitative biology since 2000. These meetings have successfully gathered scientists of diverse backgrounds from all over the world who are interested in quantitative biology research. The chosen topics for the CQB 2017 annual meeting are computational and single-molecule biophysics. 

The three-day meeting will present invited long talks, contributed short talks and poster sessions. We believe it will provide a great opportunity to discuss the latest discoveries and emerging technologies, as well as to meet with friends and colleagues.

We encourage researchers from different disciplines, such as biology, medicine, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and engineering, to join us, and we hope that new thoughts, ideas, and collaborations will emerge in this open and interdisciplinary environment.

Cologne, Germany

This conference aims at bringing together scientists from Europe and other parts of the world to share their interests in the broad and exciting field of Organic Chemistry.

While organic synthesis, which is the art of making organic molecules in an efficient and sustainable fashion, will be in the focus of the conference, the essential impact of organic chemistry for the life sciences and the material sciences will also become apparent. Thematically, ESOC 2017 will cover the full spectrum of organic chemistry, while in particular highlighting modern trends in
•    Synthesis (natural products synthesis, synthetic methodology, reaction technology)
•    Catalysis (metal-, organo-, bio-, photoredox-)
•    C-H Bond Activation
•    Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology
•    Organic Materials and Supramolecular Chemistry
•    Physical and Computational Organic Chemistry.

Since the first ESOC in 1979, which was held at the University of Cologne under the chair of Prof. Emanuel Vogel, the biannual ESOC conferences have developed into flagship events for the Organic Chemistry community in Europe and beyond.

The conference is designed to attract organic chemists from both academia and industry, and especially PhD students, postdocs and young researchers will have plenty of opportunity for exchange and discussion. Besides 12 plenary and 12 invited lectures, there are more than 20 slots for short oral presentations (á 15 min) and space for ≥ 400 posters, which will be up during all days of the conference.
