Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 7th ECBS/LS EuCHEMS (ECBS 2021) will be held at the University of Milano-Bicocca in Milano, Italy, from 24 to 26 May 2021.

After the success and wide resonance of the 2019 edition in Madrid, this biennial, highly interdisciplinary meeting, belonging to the European Chemical Biology Symposium ECBS series, is becoming the reference event in Europe, bringing together world experts and top scientists and young investigators in the fields of Medicinal and Biological Chemistry. Jointly organized by the Life Sciences division of EuCheMS ( and by the European ESFRI infrastructure EU-OPENSCREEN (, the ECBS meeting focuses on diverse aspects of innovative chemistry at the interface with biology, material science, biophysiscs, and other disciplines.

Among the topics addressed at this conference are: artificial intelligence in drug design, small molecules targeting nucleic acids, new pharmacolocal approaches: targeting protein degradation, protein aggregation and self-assembly, bio-nanotechnology and synthetic biology, natural compounds chemistry and biology, glycochemistry and glycobiology, fighting resistant pathogens, and new approaches in antiviral therapies.

Attendants of the conference, especially early-stage researchers, are cordially invited to contribute to this Special issue with original research papers or reviews.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
