RICT 2021

56th International Conference on Medicinal Chemistry
56èmes Rencontres Internationales de Chimie Thérapeutique

 Bordeaux, France    July 7-9, 2021

We hope that the situation will allow for a physical event to take place, but the format of the symposium might be adapted based on the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The French Medicinal Chemistry Society (Société de Chimie Thérapeutique - SCT) is pleased to invite you to Bordeaux, France on July 7-9, 2021 for the 56th edition of the International Conference on Medicinal Chemistry.

The congress will be devoted to “Interfacing Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery” and the main topics will be:

  • Chemistry in Living Systems & Chemical Biology for Targets Identification
  • Recent Advances in Targeted Protein-Protein Interactions Including Protein Degradation and Targeted Protein-DNA/RNA Interactions
  • Recent Trends in Drug Development for Neurodegenerative Diseases
  • Innovations in Cancer Therapeutics
  • Tackling New Challenges in Delivery Systems and Drug Formulation
  • Case Studies: Moving New Chemical Entities to the Market

As for previous editions of RICT, the scientific committee will ensure the high quality and diversity of the scientific programme together with the accessibility of the meeting to PhD/post-doc and local Master students. For the latter, an advantageous registration fee is proposed. Moreover, a special career session will be organised with industrial and academic participants.

During the meeting, you will have the opportunity to listen to:

Stuart Schreiber

Prof. Stuart Schreiber (HARVARD UNIVERSITY, CAMBRIDGE MA, United States), recipient of the 2020 Paul Ehrlich Award, awarded for his outstanding contributions to medicinal chemistry.

Gilles Gasser Dr Gilles Gasser (CHIMIE PARISTECH, PSL UNIVERSITY, Paris, France), recipient of the 2020 Pierre Fabre Award for Therapeutic Innovation awarded for his original scientific contributions in the field.

A poster session will provide the opportunity for all participants to present their current results. “Best poster” prizes will be attributed at the end of the meeting.

On top, you will have the opportunity to maximise networking by taking part in social activities including a Welcome Reception as well as a Symposium Banquet at Château d'Agassac, a famous vineyard of Haut-Médoc in Gironde.
