To focus on cutting edge research in Chemical Biology from both academic and industry labs in the areas of machine learning applied to drug discovery, translational chemical biology, targeted protein degradation, chemical proteomics, novel target identification/validation, forward thinking synthetic strategies for chemical biology and chemical imaging.
Chemical Biology in the HUB Symposium
For more than a decade now, the Chemical Biology Committee has been supporting the Chemical Biology in the HUB Symposium. The symposium usually attracts over 200 attendees. The target audience is a diverse mix of chemical biologists, including students and professionals from industry and academia. Target areas of research are:
- Machine Learning
- Translational Chemical Biology
- Targeted Protein Degradation
- Target Identification
- Chemical Imaging
The purposes of the symposium is: To encourage in the broadest and most liberal manner the advancement of Chemical Biology in all it’s branches; To promote the field of chemical biology in industry and academia, with emphasis in the Boston area; By its meetings and professional contacts to promote chemical biology with an emphasis on representing the wealth and diversity of topics from chemical biology from a diverse set of experts in the field.
Process Chemistry Symposium
In addition, the Chemical Biology Committee also hosts the NESACS Process Chemistry Symposium. This day-long symposium is focused on process chemistry and features speakers from industry and academia. Opportunities to network with members of the local chemistry community and enjoy a late afternoon reception are a usual addition. For past symposiums please follow this link.
