RICT 2024

58th International Conference on Medicinal Chemistry

Interfacing Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery

 Bordeaux, France    July 3-5, 2024


2 prizes will be awarded by Galapagos and Evotec in partnership with the French Medicinal Chemistry Society SCT. The 2 awardees will be invited to give a Plenary Lecture during RICT 2024.

Deadline for application submission: March 15, 2024


SCT   Galapagos

In partnership with the French Medicinal Chemistry Society SCT, Galapagos has decided to award a talented team of researchers contributing to a scientific discovery and /or substantial therapeutic innovation. Specific emphasis will be given to the notion of drug discovery chemistry where combined disciplines, among for example molecular modeling, in silico approaches, chemistry, chemical-biology, biology or ADMET can contribute to the achievement of the team’s objectives. This contribution may arise from any phase of research and the aim of this prize is to nominate a talented team.

SCT    Evotec

Evotec, in partnership with the French Medicinal Chemistry Society SCT, is delighted to invite submissions for the “Prize for Excellence in Molecular Design” to be awarded for the third time to an exceptional young to mid-career scientific research talent from academia or industry. The successful candidate will be selected based on outstanding innovation and applied state-of-the-art molecular design skills that have contributed to a demonstrated advance to drug discovery capabilities. In particular, the assessment panel are keen to recognize “drug hunters” who have demonstrated excellence in drug design resulting in highly informative novel molecules that significantly impact a drug discovery project. Submissions preferably should be the subject of a published (or accepted) scientific article, covers a “break-through” discovery or innovative technology/method, and may include the application of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).
