Hungarian-German-Italian-Polish Joint Meeting on Medicinal Chemistry, 2-6 September 2001, Budapest, Hungary

> Back to Calendar

In recent decades, the practice of medicinal chemistry has developed from an empirical science, involving organic synthesis of new compounds and based largely on modification of structures of known activity, to a more logical and less intuitive approach. Medicinal chemistry has, therefore, become a collaborative effort between a variety of chemists, biologists, spectroscopists, geneticists, and biotechnologists. On the basis of the success of the Italian-Hungarian- Polish Joint Meeting on Medicinal Chemistry held 28 September-1 October 1999 in Giardini Naxos, it was decided to organize the next meeting in Budapest, Hungary, with the involvement of Germany. Focal points of the conference cover the most important areas of medicinal chemistry from chemical, biological, genetic, and biotechnological points of view.

Interplay among medicinal chemists working in different fields and different countries will certainly lead to new collaborations with new scientific innovations and achievements, as well as to the encouragement of young researchers working in academic and industrial fields. Also, topics covered during the meeting and the presence of prominent scientists will provide strong support and stimulus for medicinal chemistry knowledge in developing countries such as Hungary and Poland. Approximately 250 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend this meeting.
