Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As a joint meeting, the 26th Medicinal Chemistry Conference of GP2A and 32nd Journées Franco-Belges de Pharmacochimie took place between 13th and 15th June at Asnelles sur Mer (Normandie, France) and provided a unique opportunity to engage with a wide group of European Medicinal Chemists.
Topics included chemical tools for medicinal chemistry, protein–protein interactions, epigenetic, natural product-inspired molecules, computer-aided drug design, and new strategies for the design and development of drugs.
Speakers at the conference and other researchers are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Pharmaceuticals
