Fragment events in 2016 (updated)

The first FBDD-related meeting of 2016 has already come and gone, but there are still plenty of events ahead. Below are several updates as well as a new listing.

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. Also as part of this event, Ben Davis and I will be teaching a short course on FBDD over dinner on April 20.

May 24: Development of Novel Therapies through Fragment Based Drug Discovery will be held in Houston, Texas. Despite being only one day, it looks like a great lineup of speakers, so check it out!

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 herehere, and here.

July 12-15: FBDD Downunder 2016 will be held at Monash University in Melbourne. This is only the second such event; the first was lots of fun and even resulted in a special issue of the Aust. J. Chem., so definitely check this out if you can.

October 9-12FBLD 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. Early-bird registration is now open!

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