Dear Colleagues,


Due to the current condition related to COVID-19 pandemic and the measures announced by the Greek government, the Organizing Committee of the 18th Hellenic Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry (HSMC-18), in agreement with the Hellenic Society of Medicinal Chemistry (HSMC), decided that the Symposium will be held on-line on February 25 – 26 – 27, 2021.


The 18th Hellenic Symposium on Medicinal Chemistry continues the tradition of biannual meetings established since 35 years in Greece as a forum for the discussion of recent advances in medicinal chemistry.


The topics include drug design and lead identification and optimization, protein-protein interactions and protein degradation, ADME/Tox properties, advances in Synthetic Medicinal Chemistry, Natural Products, Pharmacology as well as the impact of artificial intelligence in the integration of data- intensive practices to Drug Discovery.


Under this multidisciplinary research umbrella the  major therapeutic areas, such as treatment of inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases and oncology will be discussed. Sections on Pharmaceutical Analysis will be integrated in the symposium program.


The official language of the Symposium is English and the scientific program will consist of lecture and poster sessions.

Deadlines for abstract submissions:

  • Oral Communications: January 29, 2021
  • Poster Presentations: February 5, 2021

(Poster presentations will be uploaded on the symposium’s website or will be presented very shortly during the poster sessions in the scientific program)  


All participants will obtain certificate of attendance.


We are looking forward to your active participation.
