24–26 April 2024 4th MMCS: Harnessing the Power of New Drug Modalities

Barcelona, Spain

We are delighted to announce the upcoming 4th Molecules Medicinal Chemistry Symposium – Harnessing the Power of New Drug Modalities (MMCS2024), which will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from April 24th to 26th, 2024.

Organized by MDPI, the publisher of the open-access journal Molecules, this conference follows the successful MMCS2019 and MMCS2022 editions, maintaining the highly appreciated three-day format to accommodate a diverse range of contributions and a large audience interested in the impact that the emergence of new drug modalities is having in drug discovery. MMCS2024's thematic sessions will revolve around photoactivatable drugs, candidates that hit RNA and epigenetic targets, and covalent modifiers. The use of these and other more classical approaches for the development of new anti-cancer agents and other medicinal chemistry projects will also be covered.

Each session will include two distinguished invited speakers who will share their insights, alongside selected oral communications. Poster presentations and social events will further enrich the program.

Our exciting lineup of invited speakers include:

  • Prof. Dr. Xavier Barril, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Barcelona, Spain
  • Prof. Dr. Paul Brennan, Centre for Medicines Discovery, Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford, UK
  • Prof. Dr. Luc Brunsveld, Laboratory of Chemical Biology, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands
  • Dr. Maria Duca, Institute of Chemistry of Nice, Université Côte d'Azur, France
  • Prof. Dr. Arun K. Ghosh, Department of Chemistry; Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Purdue University, USA
  • Prof. Dr. Pau Gorostiza, ICREA, Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), CIBER-bbn, Spain
  • Prof. Dr. Anna K. H. Hirsch, Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS), Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Swen Hoelder, The Institute of Cancer Research, London, UK
  • Prof. Dr. Xiaoguang Lei, College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, Peking University, China
  • Dr. Alessandra Magistrato, Istituto Officina dei Materiali (IOM) at International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA), Italy
