ELRIG´s Therapeutic OLIGOs & European Chemical Biology Symposium 2023

May 9-11, 2023, AstraZeneca R&D site in Gothenburg, Sweden

Our biennial flagship scientific conference, the European Chemical Biology Symposium (ECBS) brings together Chemical Biologists from all parts of Europe and overseas to present and discuss the latest achievements in cutting edge chemical sciences. The ECBS is jointly organised every two years by EU-OPENSCREEN and the EuChemS Division of Chemistry for Life Sciences.

The 8th edition of the ECBS (ECBS2023) will be held on May 9-11, 2023, at the AstraZeneca R&D site in Gothenburg, Sweden, as a combined event with the inaugural ELRIG meeting on Therapeutic OLIGOs. The conference will focus on exciting topics like Therapeutic OLIGO profiling, Advancements in OLIGO design and synthesis, Novel formulations and biomarker analysis, Chemical probe-induced protein interaction and degradation, New ways to shape and interrogate biology through chemistry, and innovative tools and methods for advanced cell profiling.

ECBS 2021 Virtual Conference

ECBS 2021 Virtual Conference

May 26-28, 2021

For free registration and abstract submission please visit the event website: https://ecbs2021.eu/

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, it is our pleasure to invite you to the virtual European Chemical Biology Symposium (ECBS) 2021, which is jointly organised by EU-OPENSCREEN and the EuChemS Division of Chemistry for Life Sciences .The meeting builds on the success of the 6th ECBS/LS-EuChemS in Madrid in 2019, the 5th ECBS in Budapest 2017 and the ICBS/ECBS joint meeting in Berlin in 2015.

The virtual ECBS 2021 brings together scientists from Europe and overseas to present and discuss their latest achievements in cutting edge chemical sciences at the interface with biology and medicine, ranging from new therapeutic approaches to resistant pathogens and viral infections (special session on COVID19 research), to targeting of proteasome and protein aggregation, natural products, artificial intelligence in drug discovery, nanostructured biomaterials, synthetic biology, glycochemistry and biology, chemistry of life origin.

We encourage young researchers to present their work at the meeting (oral & flash presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts), and embrace the exciting developments currently happening in chemical biology.

The conference is split over 3 days – May 26th until May 28th starting with an opening lecture from Herbert Waldmann (Max-Planck Insitute of Molecular Physiology). The ECBS2021 further includes 9 sessions on

  •     Nanomedicine and biomaterials
  •     Targeted protein degradation
  •     Artificial intelligence & computational drug design
  •     Platforms in drug discovery
  •     Fighting resistant pathogens & new antiviral therapies
  •     Natural compound chemistry and biology
  •     Protein aggregation and self-assembly in disease
  •     Glycochemistry & -biology
  •     Origin of life & synthetic biology

and a dedicated evening session on Covid-19 research activities.

Abstract submission deadline: 31/03/2021
Free registration deadline: 31/04/2021
