Frustration with the lack of drugs entering the market has forced the pharmaceutical industry to examine how libraries are designed and synthesized. Emphasis has shifted from making large combinatorial libraries to smaller, more target-focused libraries, filtered to exclude non-drug or non-leadlike entities. This has been facilitated largely by increased knowledge of biological target structure, in conjunction with advances in computational tools. Combichem techniques are now being used more frequently in medchem projects and yielding results in lead discovery and optimization. Efforts to produce diverse natural product-like libraries in the hope of finding compounds that will be more effective in the clinic are also gaining a great deal of attention. Compound storage and stability are critical issues for many organizations that handle large compound collections. All of these topics will be discussed at length during this event. This conference will include a one-day special event showcasing results from microwave-assisted synthesis in organic, medicinal, and combinatorial chemistry. Presentations will be given by key industrial and renowned academic players in this new exciting field.
