The 2019 High-Throughput Chemistry and Chemical Biology (HTCCB) GRC provides a unique forum for pioneering multidisciplinary science at the interface of Chemistry and Biology, in a welcoming, inspiring and inclusive environment. Diversity is the essence of our conference, with speakers and attendees from academia, industry and other research institutions, at different stages of their careers and from all corners of the world. New colleagues and old friends gather in a relaxed atmosphere for collegial, dynamic discussions of the latest advances in synthetic methodologies and reaction discovery, chemical biology, “omics”, biochemistry, high throughput experimentation and computational sciences. The overarching theme of the 2019 meeting is the application of these scientific disciplines to expand the druggable proteome, and better address the challenges associated with interrogation of human biology to impact drug discovery.
In addition to invited talks, poster sessions will continue to be an important part of the scientific and social exchange at the HTCCB GRC. We encourage conferees to present posters, to foster informal live discussions throughout the conference. A selection of poster authors will be invited to present short talks on their work. Please submit a poster abstract with your conference application.
We are also pleased to announce that Evijola Llabani (University of Illinois, USA) and Carlos Moreno Yruela (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) are organizing the 6th Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on High-Throughput Chemistry and Chemical Biology. This GRS will be held on Saturday and Sunday June 1-2, immediately prior to the GRC, and will provide an opportunity for trainees to share science and interact with leading researchers in an intimate setting. Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to apply to both the GRS and GRC.
We look forward to receiving your application for a memorable meeting.
