Welcome

The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to participate at MedChem 2021 (X Meeting of the Paul Ehrlich Euro-PhD Network) to be held in Barcelona from the 10th to the 12th of June 2021, hosted by the Department of Organic and Pharmaceutical Chemistry of IQS School of Engineering of the Universitat Ramon Llull.

After the successful celebration of the first 10 years of Paul Ehrlich Euro-PhD Network in Catanzaro, this meeting opens the second decennial of such network with the aim of improving the collaboration among the university members.

Although all kinds of communications in the area of Medicinal Chemistry can be submitted, the Organizing Committee has decided to focus this meeting in two areas of research that are major health issues: Cancer and Anti-infectives, so communications in these two topics are specially welcomed.

One of the reasons of our meetings is to favor the interaction between the PhD students of our 55 universities. Such interaction is achieved during the coffee breaks, meals and scientific discussions. To favor such interaction, the first MedChem Escape Room will be carried out after the lunch on Friday 11th.

The venue for the meeting will be the Conference Room of IQS School of Engineering and the adjacent hall for the poster session. The accommodation selected is at a walking distance of IQS. We are located very close to the hills that surround Barcelona but directly connected by subway with the city center (20 min).

A social program has been prepared for the night of Friday 11th including the visit to an emblematic Barcelona monument and a dinner.

The number of participants is limited to 170. Save the dates in your calendar and come to enjoy “the Mediterranean, beautiful and big Barcelona (Antonio Gaudí 1852-1926)”
