1st Alpine Winter Conference on Medicinal and Synthetic Chemistry

Jan 28 - Feb 1, 2018 · St. Anton, Austria

About the conference

The “Alpine Winter Conference on Medicinal and Synthetic Chemistry” exposes attending scientists to cutting edge synthetic and medicinal chemistry as well as latest developments in technologies that foster innovation in drug discovery. The main target audience for this highly interdisciplinary meeting will include medicinal and synthetic chemists, as well as related drug discovery disciplines from both industry and academia as well as graduate/undergraduate students and postdocs.

In the spirit of Keystone and Gordon conferences as well as the MBCF (Medicinal and Bioorganic Chemistry Foundation) conference in Steamboat Springs, the format of this meeting provides ample opportunity for attendees to informally interact. The aim is to strengthen existing networks and create new contacts.

For each of the below topics, a slot in the programme will be available for an oral communication selected out of the submitted abstracts. In addition, an open MedChem session on "Drug Discovery Tales" will have 3 open slots for oral communications. See instructions on "How to submit your abstract online".

The Conference topics will include:

  • Addressing Preclinical Toxicity – Approaches and Lessons Learned (with panel discussion)
  • Advances in Lead Generation
  • Advances in Synthetic Methods
  • Alternative Modalities
  • Challenges and Opportunities in Fragment Based Drug Discovery
  • Chemical Biology in Drug and Target Discovery
  • Drug Discovery Tales
  • Late Stage Functionalization
