XXVll EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry

The XXVll EFMC International Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry is organised by the Société de Chimie Thérapeutique (SCT), on behalf of the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology (EFMC).

The symposium will take place in Nice, France from September 4-8, 2022.

The EFMC is the main organisation for the European Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology community, with 26 member societies and about 7.500 members. Its biennial EFMC-ISMC is a key symposium in the field of medicinal chemistry and drug discovery and it traditionally attracts around 1.000 participants both from industry and academia. The most recent EFMC-ISMC meetings took place in the United Kingdom (Manchester, 2016), and Slovenia (Ljubljana, 2018), while the edition initially planned for Basel, Switzerland in 2020 will be run as a Virtual Event in 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you in Nice in 2022 !

See you virtually in July!

SCT Webinar – June 28 2021 at 2PM

European Lead Factory (ELF), a collaborative public private partnership project supported by IMI (Innovative Medicine Initiative) 1 (FP7) & 2 (Horizon 2020), is aiming to deliver high quality starting points for your Drug Discovery program.

Coorganised with ELF, this webinar is fully dedicated to the French drug discovery community.

Webinar Objective: to present to colleagues from academic research groups and biotech companies in the field of Drug Discovery how ELF can boost their activities in DD in a win-win situation. Open interactive discussions with experts and testimonies will follow after the presentation.

You will be invited to join the seminar using Microsoft Teams®
