18 June - 20 June 2017

2nd Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry for Global Health

Organised by:

 SCI's Fine Chemicals Group and RSC's Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector in association with GlaxoSmithKline

Madrid, Spain

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Tuberculosis, malaria and diseases caused by a diverse range of pathogens, including flaviviruses (e.g. dengue, West Nile), kinetoplastids (e.g. Chagas disease, leishmaniasis) and parasitic worms (e.g. filariasis), remain a cause of high mortality across the globe. However, an ever-improving understanding of the complex life-cycles of the disease-causing pathogens is presenting increasing opportunities for those seeking to tackle these global health problems. 
This meeting will focus on medicinal chemistry approaches to developing new medicines for diseases affecting global health. Keynote talks from international experts, alongside perspectives detailing case histories in drug discovery, will highlight the latest developments in the field whilst showcasing the opportunity for creativity and innovation.
Bringing together leading exponents for an exciting spread of themed sessions, the meeting will appeal to anyone with an interest in drug discovery and medicinal chemistry. With great opportunities for collaborative academic–industrial partnerships and open innovation discovery programmes, researchers from both sectors will benefit from the networking opportunities that the meeting will also offer.
