The first few fragment events of 2011 are almost upon us, but so far it's looking like the second half of the year is completely empty. If you know of anything let us know and we'll get the word out.
February 21-22: SMi’s 10th Annual Advances & Progress in Drug Design Conference will be held in London, and has a number of fragment-based talks. There is also a separate half-day post-conference workshop on the topic on February 23.
February 23-25: CHI’s Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference will again be held in my beautiful city of San Francisco, with a program on medicinal chemistry that includes a fragment section. Notes on last year’s meeting can be found here.
March 7-8: Fragments 2011, the Third RSC-BMCS Fragment-based Drug Discovery meeting, will be held in Stevenage, UK. This is a biennial event; the last was in Alderley Park in 2009 (you can read about it here and here).
April 12-13: CHI’s Sixth Annual Fragment-Based Drug Discovery will be held in San Diego. I will be helping teach one of two pre-conference short courses on the topic on April 11. You can read impressions of last year’s meeting here.
June 8-10: CHI's Eleventh Annual Structure-Based Drug Discovery will be held in Cambridge, MA, with a full session on FBDD on June 9.
Finally, if anyone attends one of these and wants to write a summary please let us know and we'll post it.
