The Medicinal Chemistry Divisions of the two Belgian Chemical Societies, "Koninklijke Vlaamse Chemische Vereniging (KVCV)" and "Société Royale de Chimie (SRC)" are organising every year an international one day symposium in Belgium, with the aim to update interested participants on selected areas of pharmaceutical research by specialists in their respective field.

This year's symposium with six invited lectures and three oral communications (to be selected from submitted abstracts) will be chaired by Prof. Serge Van Calenbergh (UGent). The title and focus of the symposium will be “Emerging Targets and Treatments: Opportunities and Challenges for Drug Design”.
