Fragment events in 2016

Happy 2016! This looks like a good year for fragment events, so start planning now!

February 21-24Zing conferences is holding its inaugural Structure Based Drug Design Conference in Carlsbad, California. This looks like a cousin of their 2014 Caribbean meeting, so it should be interesting.

April 20-21: CHI’s Eleventh Annual Fragment-Based Drug Discovery, the longest-running fragment event, will be held in San Diego. You can read impressions of last year's meeting herehere, and here; the 2014 meeting here and here; the 2013 meeting here and here; the 2012 meeting here; the 2011 meeting here; and 2010 here.

June 7-10: Although not strictly fragment-focused, the third NovAliX Conference on Biophysics in Drug Discovery is likely to have lots of relevant talks, and is a good excuse to get to Strasbourg, France. You can read Teddy's impressions of the 2013 event here, here, and here.

July 12-15: The second FBDD Down Under will be held at Monash University in Melbourne. The first was lots of fun (see here) and even resulted in a special issue of the Aust. J. Chem., so definitely check this out if you can.

October 9-12: FBLD 2016 will be held in Boston, MA. This marks the sixth in an illustrious series of conferences organized by scientists for scientists, the last of which was in Basel in 2014. Surprisingly, this also seems to be the first dedicated fragment conference in Boston. You can read impressions of FBLD 2012FBLD 2010, and FBLD 2009.

November 7-9: Finally, the OMICS Group is holding their second Drug Discovery & Designing in Istanbul, Turkey, with a track on FBDD.
