The 2021 High-Throughput Chemistry and Chemical Biology (HTCCB) GRC provides a unique forum for bringing together researchers at the interface of Chemistry and Biology, in a welcoming, inspiring and inclusive environment. Diversity and cutting edge science are the strongholds of our conference, with speakers, poster presenters and attendees from across the world and different organizations and institutions. We hope to foster intellectual and dynamic discussions of breakthroughs in synthetic methodologies, chemical biology, biochemistry, machine learning, high throughput experimentation and fundamental biology. The conference will further explore the emerging role of in silico high-throughput experimentation (i.e. docking/molecular dynamics) in maximizing a project's potential, and generally applying all of these disciplines to expand the impact of chemical biology on fundamental biology and drug discovery through the use of high throughput chemistry.
Invited talks and poster sessions and the discussions sparked by them is important part of the scientific and social exchange at the HTCCB GRC. Attendees are encouraged to present posters to foster these discussions and hopefully lead to new scientific ideas and ways to innovate and problem solve. 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 Amber Hackler (UC Irvine) and Kaley Mientkiewicz (Tufts University) are organizing the 7th Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on High-Throughput Chemistry and Chemical Biology. This GRS will be held on Saturday and Sunday, 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.
Ann Rowley (AbbVie), Deb Rothman (Merck) and Brian Paegel (University of California, Irvine)
