After a two year break the Highlights in Medicinal Chemistry meeting was held this autumn.
SCI’s Fine Chemicals Group held the event on Wednesday 23 November 2016 at SCI in London for a day of talks, networking, and an evening wine reception.
The event showcased vignettes of modern medicinal chemistry, to bring new thinking to the subject, challenge perceptions and encourage scientific interaction between researchers.
