13th Tetrahedron Symposium (Asia) – Challenges in Bioorganic & Organic Medicinal Chemistry

27 - 30 November 2012, Taipei, Taiwan

 

Call for Abstracts! Deadline: 6 July 2012 – Click here

 

Chemistry is playing an increasingly pivotal role and chemists are often intimately involved at the forefront of the biological sciences whilst bringing to them the distinctive approaches of the rigorous chemical sciences.  The Symposium will also highlight the key role of chemistry in the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents for human diseases.

Lectures from a distinguished list of world-leading speakers will cover such topics as:

 

·         Sequencing nucleic acids: from chemistry to life sciences and medicine

·         Oligonucleotide-based tools for pharmacology and nano-engineering

·         The future of kinase drug discovery - challenges and opportunities

·         Vaccines as a new paradigm for the treatment of drug addiction

·         Fragment-based drug discovery: a decade of thinking small

·         Chemical biology of nanomedicines

·         Modulation of DNA damage-response pathways in cancer therapy

·         The chemical biology of protein splicing

·         Molecular design for selective recognition and reaction with RNA Target identification for biologically relevant small molecules

 

Speakers confirmed to date can be found here.

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
Valvena, GSK Sign New R&D Collaboration
Valneva to supply process development services for EB66® -based Influenza vaccines.
Light Signals from Living Cells
Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.
Cellular 'Relief Valve'
A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
