Fragment events in 2022

Will 2022 mark the full return of in-person conferences? That's the plan - here's hoping SARS-CoV-2 doesn't interfere.

February 5-9: The  SLAS2022 International Conference and Exhibition will be held in Boston, so if you're looking for new instrumentation this is the place to be.

March 20-24: The American Chemical Society will hold its Spring National Meeting both in-person and virtually in San Diego. There are bound to be fragment talks, including a session on Modern Screening Methods on March 24.

March 27-29: The Royal Society of Chemistry's Fragments 2022 will be held in the original Cambridge, and also virtually. This is the eighth in an esteemed conference series that historically has alternated years with the FBLD meetings. You can read my impressions of Fragments 2013 and Fragments 2009.
April 19-20: CHI’s Seventeenth Annual Fragment-Based Drug Discovery, the longest-running fragment event, returns in-person to sunny San Diego (and will also be online). This is part of the larger Drug Discovery Chemistry meeting. You can read impressions of the 2021 virtual meeting here, the 2020 virtual meeting here, the 2019 meeting here, the 2018 meeting here, the 2017 meeting here, the 2016 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

May 9-11:  While not exclusively fragment-focused, the Eighth NovAliX Conference on Biophysics in Drug Discovery will have several relevant talks, and for the first time will use a hybrid model, both online and in Munich, Germany. You can read my impressions of the 2018 Boston event here, the 2017 Strasbourg event here, and Teddy's impressions of the 2013 event herehere, and here.
October 17-20: CHI’s Twentieth Annual Discovery on Target will be held both virtually and in Boston, as it was last year. 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.
