European School of Medicinal Chemistry ESMEC
43rd Advanced Course of Medicinal Chemistry and Seminar for PhD students
Urbino, Palazzo Battiferri, Via Saffi, 42
June 30 – July 4, 2024
The mission of the ESMEC is to provide participants, PhD students and junior researchers from both academia and industry, with the most recent advances in the field of medicinal and organic chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology and analytical/ structural chemistry. This idea is aimed to reflect the current scenario of medicinal chemistry being a truly transdisciplinary approach, where the advances in knowledge are driven by the medicinal chemist’s ability to translate into new molecular concepts and into novel molecular entities the amount of information created by molecular medicine, pharmacology, molecular biology, systems biology.
For these reasons, the School is directed to participants at a graduated and post-graduated level, in chemistry but also in pharmacology or biology, who are keen to explore the interdisciplinary context of current cutting-edge research in medicinal chemistry.
To achieve these very ambitious goals, the School is organized into thematic sessions, each of them constructed around a series of lectures, followed by practical workshops.
This Year the Scientific Programme includes the following topics
MAKE IT UNBREAKABLE! COVALENT APPROACH IN DRUG DISCOVERY
CLICK-AND-TAG: HOW BIOORTHOGONAL CHEMISTRY IS TRANSFORMING DRUG DISCOVERY
UNUSUAL ELEMENTS AND FUNCTIONAL GROUPS SHAPING THE FUTURE OF MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY
Market Watch: New Drug Approval in 2023 and Synthetic Strategies
Deadlines will be announced soon
