Medicinal Chemistry Meets Pharmacology

Finnish Pharmacological Society, FinMedChem & Finnish Peptide Society Joint Symposium
Helsinki – April 24 – 25, 2018

Medicinal Chemistry Meets Pharmacology is the first two-day symposium in Finland to join researchers in pharmacology, medicinal chemistry and peptide research. The program for the symposium has been planned from two perspectives. The first aspect is to present cases in which medicinal chemistry has successfully collaborated with pharmacology and vice versa. The second aspect is the 70th anniversary of the Finnish Pharmacological Society. Since biomedical research and drug discovery are highly multidisciplinary, the program of this genuinely joint symposium has been designed to attract researchers with different backgrounds.

Confirmed international plenary speakers:

Dr. Sarah Jones, University of Wolverhampton, UK Prof. Peter Kolb, Philipps-University Marburg, Germany Prof. Stefan Laufer, University of Tübingen, Germany Prof. Helgi Schiöth, Uppsala University, Sweden Prof. Brendan Whittle, Queen Mary University of London, UK
