EFMC-ASMC 2017 REPORT 17 With more than 500 scientists coming from over 50 different nations, the 7th edition of the EFMC International Symposium on Advances in Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC- ASMC’17, held at the University of Vienna, was an impressive success. EFMC-ASMC’17 was jointly organized by the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry (EFMC), the Medicinal Chemistry Section of the Austrian Chemical Society (GÖCH) and ChemBridge Corporation. The high quality programme - compiled by two remarkable Symposium Chairs: Erick Carreira (ETH Zürich, CH) and Karin Briner (Novartis, US) – together with the attractiveness of Vienna, led to a very successful symposium, whose aim is to bring together Organic and Medicinal Chemistry. by a full day of interesting talks, given by prominent scientists and rising stars in both Organic and Medicinal Chemistry – among those were Freek Janssen (Leiden University, NL) who won the presentation competition during the 3 rd edition of the Young Medicinal Chemist Symposium (EFMC-YMCS 2016). The following days were again the occasion to hear great talks, and to congratulate the winners and runners-up of the EFMC Prize for a Young Medicinal Chemist in Academia, and the EFMC Prize for a Young Medicinal Chemist in Industry. The Symposium was closed by the lecture of Véronique Gouverneur (University of Oxford, UK) and the poster prize ceremony, where 5 talented chemists received an EFMC Poster Prize. EFMC YEARBOOK 2018 The symposium focused on the most recent advances in new synthetic methodologies, total synthesis, fluorination approaches, bioisosteres and building blocks, chemical biology, medicinal chemistry, drug discovery and development leading to new or improved methods for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals. Beyond key lectures in synthetic and fluorination chemistry, as well as recent case studies in medicinal chemistry and drug discovery, the symposium aims at bridging the range from ‘small molecules’ to ‘large molecules’ including carbohydrates, natural products, novel protein scaffolds and genes; it is expected to attract experts in synthetic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, total synthesis, catalysis, drug discovery, molecular imaging, and chemical development. The Opening lecture, given by Dirk Trauner (New York University, US) was the start of a five day symposium with many scientific highlights, 26 speakers, 10 oral communications, 238 poster presentations, 19 exhibitors and 11 sponsors. The second day was opened by the lecture of James E. Bradner (Novartis, US) followed The scientific programme was complemented by an entertaining social programme. Vienna, often described as Europe’s cultural capital, is a metropolis with unique charm, vibrancy and flair. Vienna, the capital of Austria, lies on the banks of the Danube River in a valley protected by the foothills of the Alps. The city is organised into 23 districts, which (roughly) spiral clockwise around the first district, the old city limits. Most of the city’s landmarks are located inside the Ringstrasse, a grand boulevard that replaced the city wall. The influx of visitors from all over the world has made Vienna the most popular urban tourist destination in Austria. Vienna can also be considered as the world capital of music, home to numerous opera, operetta and musical composers. Music lovers are attracted to Vienna. With a musical heritage that knows no equal, the Viennese are justly proud of their city’s major performance venues. Interested participants could learn more about the architecture and imperial history of the city with a bus tour and a visit of the Imperial Summer Palace of Schönbrunn, while some
