5th CONFERENCE IN ADVANCED MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY
"Molecular Aspects of Drug Action in Drug Design"
May 23-25, 1997, Thessaloniki, GREECE.
Under the Auspices of the European Federation for Pharmaceutical
Organisation: The Department of Pharmaceutical-Medicinal Chemistry,
School of Pharmacy, Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki, in
Collaboration with the Panhellenic Union of Pharmacists, organises the
5th Conference in Advanced Medicinal Chemistry, on 23, 24 and 25 of May
The theme of the Congress this year will be: Molecular Aspects of Drug
Action in Drug Design.
There will be eight world-wide recognised authorities in the field as
Objective: The objective of this Conference is the presentation of the
new developments in drug design, approached from different ways, by well
recognised authorities in Medicinal Chemistry in the broad sense.
Another important objective is the contact of the invited speakers among
themselves and with their Greek and other attending pharmacochemists,
through the scientific discussions and the social meetings. Small to
medium size scientific conferences have the advantage to offer exiting
scientific discussions, in an informal and friendly manner. The high
standards of these Conferences in Advanced Medicinal Chemistry in
Thessaloniki are guaranteed by the special selection of the world-wide
known authorities who are invited as speakers.
Audience: Pharmacochemists, Pharmaceutical Scientists oriented in Drug
Design, Molecular and Biochemical Pharmacology and Toxicology, Medical
Scientists interested in the molecular aspects of drug actions and drug
interactions, Biologists, Biochemists, Chemists and Agriculture
Scientists interested in xenobiotic, food Biochemistry and environmental
