The Gordon Research Seminar on Medicinal Chemistry is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and early career professionals to interact with experienced medicinal chemists to develop and expand their understanding of the key principles and approaches taken in modern drug discovery projects. Topics will include discussion of the impact of physicochemical properties and chemical structure on pharmacology, pharmacokinetic and toxicology outcomes, as well as application of cutting edge technologies to drug discovery programs.
The focus of this meeting is to explore fundamental principles of contemporary medicinal chemistry coupled with poster presentations representing the various therapeutic areas and target classes of current interest in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The principles will be presented in a workshop format, allowing for close interaction between practicing medicinal chemists and academic attendees. Case studies of drug discovery projects will highlight successful approaches taken to deliver clinical candidates. Registration support will be available for participants; please contact the chair for details.
