Updated again: Fragment-based conferences in 2010

The year is not even half over, but most of the fragment events are behind us (see summaries here, here, and here). You still have a couple more opportunities for some great conferences.

June 6-9: The 32nd National Medicinal Chemistry Symposium will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Dave Rees is organizing a session on fragments on June 9. Looks like a great lineup, with top speakers from Astex, Plexxikon, Novartis, Abbott, and UC Berkeley.

October 10-13: Fragment-based Lead Discovery 2010 is the first major fragment event on the east coast of the US (in Philadelphia, PA). There are lots of excellent speakers, and the conference is still accepting abstracts for talks until May 31. Early bird-registration also ends that day. If you haven’t made it to any other fragment events this year, don’t miss FBLD 2010!

Know of anything else? Organizing a fragment event? Let us know and we’ll get the word out.
