3rd International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry Successfully Closed

Further to the success of the two first editions, Pharmaceuticals, an open access, peer-reviewed journal of MDPI, was proud to organize and sponsor the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Medicinal Chemistry. The conference was held online from 1–30 November 2017 and gathered around 300 authors from 34 different countries, hosting over 70 presentations, keynotes, videos, and posters. Two special round tables enabled participants to focus on nanomedicines (organized by Precision Nanosystems) and on parasitic diseases (organized by Dr. Conor R. Caffrey, the University of California San Diego).

The Scientific Advisory Committee elected and awarded 500 CHF to the best presentation from Dr. Jalal Soubhye, entitled “Dual Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Bacterial Effects of Phenylhydrazide and Phenylhydrazone Derivatives”.
