Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 11th International Symposium for Chinese Medicinal Chemists 2018 (ISCMC2018) will be held 24–26 August, 2018, in Zhengzhou, China. This symposium is hosted by the Division of Medicinal Chemistry, the Chinese Pharmaceutical Association, and is organized by Zhengzhou University.

The theme of ISCMC this year is focusing on the frontier, marching on innovations. Plenary and session presentations at the conference will be presented by prestigious Chinese medicinal chemists from all over the world. Topics about the most advanced international and national progress, achievements, state-of-the-art technologies, research experiences, and hot spots related, but not limited to, medicinal chemistry will be presented and discussed at this symposium. Future directions, challenges and perspectives of medicinal chemistry will also be addressed.

All participants of the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Molecules. Please kindly note that the manuscript has to be substantially different from the conference paper.
