50th Anniversary Symposium

On the 26th and 27th of October 2020 the medCHEMbio2020conference is organised in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The theme of this conference is ‘A joint future for Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology in the Netherlands’ and is organised as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the KNCV sectie Farmacochemie.
