The Gordon Research Seminar on Medicinal Chemistry is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas in modern drug
Topics will include discussion of concepts of
lead-likeness and also on the impact of chemical structure on physicochemical properties,
pharmacology, pharmacokinetic and toxicology outcomes. The application of
cutting edge technologies to drug discovery programs will also be discussed.
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 participating 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.
