Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2017 Chinese Medicinal Chemistry Symposium (CMCS 2017) will be held, 27–30 August, 2017, in Beijing, China. It is the highest scientific event for the Chinese medicinal chemistry research field, aiming to provide a high-level platform for the discussion and exchange of the latest developments in medicinal chemistry and related fields, for researchers and the business community. According to the signed cooperation framework agreement between the Chinese Pharmaceutical Association and the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry, the 2017 CPA-EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry will be held in the same period.

The topic of this symposium is “Committing to New Global Medicine Research and Development—Focusing on New Molecules, Technologies, and Therapies”. The symposium will provide a good communication platform for researchers of medicinal chemistry and related fields, enhancing communication and cooperation, and promoting the development and application of medicinal chemistry. Thus, we set up this Special Issue to provide a global platform for presenting the latest research results in medicinal chemistry-related areas.

In this Special Issue, we welcome original articles and short communications, as well as a limited number of review articles, which present the most advanced medicinal chemistry-related research results, including, but not limited to, novel biological active molecules, novel screening and design methods, and new therapeutic strategies.

Prof. Dr. Qi-Dong You
