Fragment events in 2017 and 2018

The year is halfway behind us, but there are still a couple upcoming fragment-based events, and next year is already taking shape.

2017

July 23-28: Australia is coming into its own as a destination for fragment experts, many of whom will be participating in the Royal Australian Chemical Institute's Centenary Congress in Melbourne. The entire event should be huge - think ACS with wombats - so if you've been looking for yet another reason to travel Down Under, this is it.

September 25-29: CHI's Discovery on Target in Boston includes an Inaugural Lead Generation Strategies track (September 26-27), and it looks like fragments will play a major role - as well they should!

2018

January 28 - February 1: The First Alpine Winter Conference on Medicinal and Synthetic Chemistry will take place in St. Anton am Alberg, Austria. This looks like a fun event and includes a section on FBDD.

April 2-6: CHI’s Thirteenth Annual Fragment-Based Drug Discovery, the longest-running fragment event, will be held in San Diego. You can read impressions of this year's meeting here, last year's meeting here; the 2015 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 6-9: Although not exclusively fragment-focused, the fifth NovAliX Conference on Biophysics in Drug Discovery will have lots of relevant talks, and will be held for the first time in Boston. You can read my impressions of the recent Strasbourg event here and Teddy's impressions of the 2013 event herehere, and here.

October 7-10: Finally, FBLD 2018 returns to San Diego, where it was born back in 2008. This will mark the seventh in an illustrious series of conferences organized by scientists for scientists. You can read impressions of FBLD 2016, FBLD 2014,  FBLD 2012FBLD 2010, and FBLD 2009.

Thanks for the list Dan. Good to see FBLD reaching it's 10th year.

The 7th installment of the Fragments series will be held in March 2019, TBC on the location.

Thanks
