1st Swedish Medicinal Chemistry Symposium
Discovering molecules able to cure disease is a major challenge for medicinal chemists and the drug discovery scientists in both academia and industry. Small molecule drug discovery has for the last decades delivered highly valuable drugs that helps improve lives of millions of patients. During the last decade there has been exciting developments in new approaches to identify, characterize and develop new compounds. There has also been an accelerating interest in drug discovery based on alternative modalities including macrocycles, peptides, and nucleotides.
We hereby invite you to participate in the 1st Swedish Medicinal Chemistry Symposium organized by the Swedish Pharmaceutical Society. The two-day meeting will focus on recent advances in Swedish drug discovery research with contributions from both academia and industry. The meeting also provides an excellent opportunity for networking.
At the Symposium, the 2017 Medicinal Chemistry prizewinner will be presented. The prize has been awarded since 1993, by the Medicinal Chemistry section of the Swedish Pharmaceutical Society, to a person(s) who has made significant contributions within the area of Medicinal Chemistry in Sweden. Most Welcome to join us in Stockholm!

Information about exhibition
Collaborative Drug Discovery
The symposium will include a poster session where attendees will be given an excellent opportunity to share their data and network with scientists from industry and academia. Based on submitted poster abstracts a few presenters will be offered to make an oral presentation of their work. The best presentation will be awarded a prize to participate and give a presentation at the 5th Young Medicinal Chemist Symposium (EFMC-YMCS 2018), This symposium is back-to-back with the EFMC-ISMC meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Submit your abstract at the latest Aug 20 to firstname.lastname@example.org
