Dictated by the uncertainties of the Covid-19 pandemic, the conferenced moved to an online formate.

Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDP) have long been considered undruggable because of their inherent flexibility and therefore lack of stable binding pockets for small molecules. Many IPD are associated with diseases making them attractive targets for drug discovery. Novel strategies to address these targets are needed and understanding has increased over the recent years.

Illustrating the progress in the field of intrinsically disordered proteins will be of high interest to students in chemistry, pharmacy, biology, and to the medicinal chemistry and chemical biology community at large. The target audience is therefore composed of scientists from pharmaceutical and biotech industries, as well as colleagues from academia.

The program is composed of 6 invited speakers highlighting recent progress in the field. Additional 6 short communications will be selected from submitted abstracts.

A poster session covering topics of Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology in a broader sense will take place during lunch break.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Dan Nomura (Berkeley, USA)
  • Ben Schuler (UHZ, Switzerland)
  • Hilal Lashuel (EPFL, Switzerland)
  • Birgit Strodel (Jülich, Germany)
  • Sarah Slavoff (Yale University, USA)
