"Digitalization and the medicinal chemistry – chemical biology continuum".
The French Medicinal Chemistry Society (Société de Chimie Thérapeutique - SCT) is pleased to invite you to Nantes, France on July 3-5, 2019 for the 55th edition of the International Conference on Medicinal Chemistry (RICT 2019).
The congress will be devoted to “Interfacing Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery” and the main topics will be:
- Targeting Proteins for the Development of New Therapeutic Strategies
- Combating (Re)Emerging Pathogens
- Tackling New Challenges in Drug Delivery
- Exploring Biologically Relevant Molecular Space
- Artificial Intelligence in Drug Discovery: Reality or Hype?
- Case Studies: from Target Validation to Novel Drugs (all Therapeutic Areas included)
As for previous editions of RICT, the scientific committee will ensure the high quality and diversity of the scientific programme together with the accessibility of the meeting to PhD/post-doc and local Master students. For the latter, an advantageous registration fee is proposed. Moreover, a special career session will be organised with industrial and academic participants.
|During the meeting, you will have the opportunity to listen to Prof. Herbert Waldmann (Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology), recipient of the 2019 Paul Ehrlich Award, awarded for his outstanding contributions to medicinal chemistry.|
|Also, the 2019 Pierre Fabre Award for Therapeutic Innovation will be attributed to Dr Frédéric Taran (CEA/SACLAY) for his contribution to therapeutic innovation.|
In addition, a poster session will provide the opportunity for all participants to present their current results. “Best poster” prizes will be attributed at the end of the meeting.
