About the Conference

Dear friends and colleagues!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of MedChem Russia 2019 Conference we are pleased to invite academic and university researchers, foreign scientists, pharmaceutical and medical business representatives, postgraduate students and students to the 4th Russian Conference on Medicinal Chemistry which is to be held in Ekaterinburg, June 9-14, 2019 within the framework of the XXI Mendeleev Congress

MedChem Russia conferences are held every 2 years in large scientific, educational and cultural centers of the Russian Federation. The first conference was held in Moscow in 2013, the second, in Novosibirsk in 2015, and the third one, in Kazan in 2017. This international conference is mainly aimed at detailed analysis of current developments, innovative approaches and advanced technologies in the field of medicinal chemistry and drug research. 

The scientific program of MedChem Russia 2019 will include plenary lectures, oral reports and poster presentations. Youth School Conference on medicinal chemistry and the sections on computer chemistry, on cell technologies, on domestic anticancer and anti-infectious drugs and on materials for medicine will be held within the framework of the Conference. In addition to the scientific program, various events aimed at business communications are planned. Holding such forum on the international level, which will be interest for both scientists and industrial representatives, working in the area of medicinal chemistry and drug design, is one of the major tasks for the organizers. 

 The Conference is to be held in the Yeltsin Ural Federal University and in the M.N. Mikheev Institute of Metal Physics of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences 

 Ekaterinburg has one of the oldest scientific schools in Russia in pharmaceutical chemistry. Two institutions of higher education, the Ural Federal University named after the First President of Russia B.N. Yeltsin (UrFU) and the Ural State Medical University (USMU), are the schools for training specialists for pharmaceutical industry and healthcare. The Urals is known to be a focus of major scientific potentials. There are more than 20 academic institutes of the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (UBRAS) including the  Postovsky Institute of Organic Synthesis specializing in medicinal chemistry. Drug design is carried out by a number of UrFU and USMU departments, the Ural Research Institute of Phthisiopulmonology, the Ural Research Institute of Dermatovenerology and Immunopathology, as well as by the recently established UrFU Innovation Center for Chemical and Pharmaceutical Technology. The Ural Biopharmaceutical Cluster has been founded in the region, uniting Medsintez Pharmaceutical Plant (Novouralsk), Uralbiofarm (Beryozovsky), Irbit Chemical Pharmaceutical Plant and other companies of the industry. Thus, in the Urals there are all prerequisites for joining the efforts of industrial pharmaceutical companies, as well as research and educational institutions working in the field of organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry, which will allow solving the strategic task of providing people with modern medicinal agents
 We are looking forward to seeing you in Ekaterinburg!
