Medicinal Chemistry Group
Our Mission
The mission of the medicinal chemistry group is to advance knowledge and understanding of drug discovery research by organizing world class quality symposia.
Our meetings provide our attendees with access to top quality science presenters and offer unique networking connectivity with thought leaders in the scientific community.
Our members work at the forefront of the life science sector and are constantly striving to bring new medicines and therapies forward to the clinic to meet unmet need.

Volunteer Opportunities
The Medicinal chemistry group will be interested in volunteers to assist with annual symposium specifically for contacting potential vendors and fund-raising efforts. Please contact the med chem chair, Raj Rajur at rrajur@creagenbio.com, if interested.
