Drug Discovery and Development

18–22 September 2011, Zadar, Croatia

Physical chemistry underlies most of the tools medicinal chemists have at hand to assist them in their research. The vast armada of physico-chemical methods and techniques available enable fast and accurate measurements of specific parameters facilitating identification and selection of drug candidates. However, the appropriate applications of physico-chemical techniques or their combination, the proper choice of the corresponding methods, as well as the accurate interpretation of the results, rely not only on good knowledge of physical chemistry but also on open and active communication among scientists.

The 2nd World Conference on Physico-Chemical Methods in Drug Discovery and Development, 18–22 September 2011, Zadar, Croatia, focuses on the advanced directions and new achievements in physical chemistry methods applied to the research processes in drug discovery and pharmaceutical development. A diverse, well-balanced scientific program is planned. Topics covered in the conference program include separation techniques, methods of spectroscopy and microscopy, polymorphism and solid-state analytics, bio-molecular interactions, and physico-chemical profiling including dissolution and permeability. However, this list is by no means exhaustive. The intention of the Organizing Committee is to provide a forum where scientists from both academic institutions and industry settings can meet and, in the relaxed and stimulating atmosphere, exchange their ideas and challenges.
