The aim of the 8th RSC-BMCS Fragment-based Drug Discovery meeting will be to continue the focus on case studies in Fragment-based Drug Discovery that have delivered compounds to late stage medicinal chemistry, preclinical or clinical programmes. The Fragment series was started in 2007 and continues with this theme in having over three-quarters of the presentations focused on case studies. This will be complemented by technology progress in high concentration, NMR, SPR and X-ray screening.

Who should attend
This conference is suitable for scientists including chemists, biophysicists, structural biologists, etc., with either existing experience of fragments or wanting to learn about this exciting approach to drug discovery. This international meeting attracts delegates from the UK, several mainland European counties, as well as from the USA, Japan, China and South Korea.

Pre-conference workshop
A pre-conference workshop is planned with some new material to offer those new to the area of FBLD, including an introduction into the fundamental principles governing fragment-based drug discovery approaches. A series of four short presentations with opportunities for discussions is planned. The pre-conference workshop will only be held if sufficient interest is evident, and will be offered free-of-charge to conference attendees.
