15th Swiss Course on Medicinal Chemistry 2024

15<sup>th</sup> Swiss Course on Medicinal Chemistry 2024

This five-day Medicinal Chemistry School focuses on most modern aspects associated with small molecule drug discovery, highlighting the methodologies and technologies supporting hit generation, lead finding and lead optimization campaigns.

Start Date 13.10.2024 - 18:00
Event End 18.10.2024 - 13:00
Location Alpine Classic Hotel
1854 Leysin, Switzerland

As in previous years, the teaching content is targeted at young scientists working in the area of medicinal chemistry, but also from flanking disciplines such as biochemistrypharmacypharmacology, or biophysics from the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. Given the broad spectrum and the timeliness of scientific topics discussed, the course also provides a valuable opportunity for advanced medicinal chemists to get acquainted with most recent developments in e.g. the medicinal chemistry of novel target families, novel compound classes, and most modern optimization paradigms. In addition, a number of PhD students and postdocs are able to attend to receive a broad overview on scientific disciplines involved in modern drug discovery.

The event is thematically structured along key topics of strategic relevance for medicinal chemistry that will be presented by opinion leaders in the field. The teaching content is further intensified by hands-on tutorials in which the theoretical learning’s can immediately be applied to real life problems of pre-clinical drug discovery.
