Gotten vaccinated yet? Don't worry - the first few conferences of the year will be virtual, but hopefully we'll be meeting in person later this year.
March 9-12: While not exclusively fragment-focused, the Second NovAliX Virtual Conference on Biophysics in Drug Discovery will have several relevant talks. You can read my impressions of the 2018 event here, the 2017 Strasbourg event here, and Teddy's impressions of the 2013 event here, here, and here.
May 18-19: CHI’s Sixteenth Annual Fragment-Based Drug Discovery, the longest-running fragment event, will again be held virtually. This is part of the larger Drug Discovery Chemistry meeting, running May 18-20. You can read impressions of the 2020 virtual meeting here, the 2019 meeting here, the 2018 meeting here, the 2017 meeting here, the 2016 meeting here; the 2015 meeting here, here, 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.
September 27-30: CHI’s Nineteenth Annual Discovery on Target returns to the real world - or at least Boston. As the name implies this event is more target-focused than chemistry-focused, but there are always plenty of FBDD-related talks. You can read my impressions of the 2020 virtual event here, the 2019 event here, and the 2018 event here.
December 16-21: What better place to say goodbye to COVID than Hawaii? Postponed from last year, the second Pacifichem Symposium devoted to fragments will be held in Honolulu. Pacifichem conferences are normally held every 5 years and are designed to bring together scientists from Pacific Rim countries including Australia, Canada, China, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, and the US. Here are my impressions of the 2015 event.
