Synopsis

Now in its eighth year, Synthesis of Bioactive Molecules will take place once again in the the Analytical & Biological Chemistry Research Facility in University College Cork.

This one-day meeting, which has become ever more popular, is a joint RSC/ICI/SOCI event designed to incorporate research from both acaedmia and industry.

According to a previous review, this event was described as '...bringing together scientists from the Republic of Ireland and from Northern Ireland who have varied interests in drug discovery and development and a common interest in synthesis. The 2008 meeting was the fourth in a series and establishes the events as an 'essential' date in the Irish calendar.'
