IUPACs International Symposium on Bioorganic Chemistry (ISBOC-11) & Konstanz Symposium Chemical Biology

Freitag, 29. September 2017
00.00 – 23.59 Uhr

University of Konstanz, Audimax (A600)

University of Konstanz, Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology (KoRS-CB)

The international conference ISBOC-11, the IUPAC's International Symposium on Bioorganic Chemistry jointly conducted with the Konstanz Symposium Chemical Biology will be held at the University of Konstanz, Germany, from 27-29 September 2017.

Although merged to one both conferences have their own tradition: The ISBOC series of meetings was inaugurated in 1986 in New York by Ronald Breslow and has moved around the world at appr. three year intervals. Ten symposia have been held till now in places like Biarritz (France), Pune (India), Sheffield (England), Toronto (Canada), Beijing (China) and Torino (Italy). ISBOC-11 is now to be held in Konstanz and, thus, for the first time in Germany. The Konstanz Symposium Chemical Biology was inaugurated by the Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology in 2010 with the aim to bring young scientists into contact with experts in the field of Chemical Biology. In the meantime, the symposium has become a regular event of the graduate school and has been held three times.

The present meeting aims at enhancing the scientific communication among researchers at the interface of chemistry and biology. The programme will include two keynote lectures by Nobel laureates, plenary lectures from invited speakers across the globe as well as short talks, partly by early-stage researchers, and poster presentations.

Along with the symposium, an Autumn School for graduate students is taking place. Over two days, experts in the respective fields introduce fundamental methods, techniques, and concepts. Subsequently, the participants of the Autumn School Chemical Biology join the symposium.
