7th EFMC Short Course on Medicinal Chemistry

14/02/2013 13:22


The European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC) is organising the 7th EFMC Short Course on Medicinal Chemistry 

Principles of Molecular Recognition
April 21-24, 2013 
Castle "Oud Poelgeest", Oegstgeest, near Leiden, The Netherlands

The programme is available on the website!

This intensive course is intended for scientists working in the field, and the presentations will be given by senior scientists from industry and academia. The number of participants will be limited to 35, to favour in depth discussion.

Course outline 
The interactions between molecules govern all of the properties that determine whether a compound will be an effective drug or not. This course will present the fundamental considerations determining the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of interactions between molecules.
The first part of the course will begin with an introduction to the types of interactions that are usually considered important for drug-like compounds, including some of the less commonly considered weaker interaction types.
The second part of the course will focus on applied aspects. This will take two forms: detailed presentations considering most key molecular properties and some hands on tutorial exercises. Both will be structured around real life case studies taken from the literature and the presenters’ own experience. 
A detailed course outline as well as the programme of the Short Course are available on the  

Course fee
The course fee is € 1475 including 3 nights accommodation, breakfast, coffee-breaks, lunches and dinners during the days of the conference.
