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
  • Prof. Dr. Wiktor Szymanski, Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

28–31 May 2024 Polymers 2024 – Polymers for a Safe and Sustainable Future

Athens, Greece

We are very proud and honored to announce the international conference “Polymers 2024—Polymers for a Safe and Sustainable Future”, organized in collaboration with the MDPI open access journal Polymers, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and BIOMAC project, and Exelisis Co. The conference will be held in Athens, Greece, on May 28–31, 2024.

Polymers 2024 is an international conference that will explore the latest advances in polymer science to produce safe and sustainable materials, with unique properties for human health and environmental sustainability. The conference will also discuss clean, green, and efficient production processes, life cycle assessments, exposure, risk assessment, decontamination and environmental remediation, and novel techniques for polymer recycling and reuse. Polymers 2024 is a unique opportunity for polymer scientists from around the world to present their work and innovations in polymer chemistry and technology under the view of sustainable development.

The conference follows the previous successful meetings Polymers 2018—Polymers: Design, Function and Application held in March 2018, Barcelona, Spain and Polymers 2022: New Trends in Polymer Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People held in May 2022 in Turin, Italy.

We welcome abstracts for posters or short talks related to the conference theme, which will be considered for presentation at the conference. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to present their work and discuss their research in a stimulating environment.
