2nd International Conference on Global Challenges in Neglected Tropical Diseases

June 25-27, 2018, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Confirmed Plenary Speakers
Dr. Marc Ouellette – Université Laval, Québec, Canada
Dr. Dale J. Kempf – Distinguished Research Fellow at AbbVie

Conference areas

  • Biology and pathogenesis of the pathogens, diseases and hosts.
  • Molecular targets-based and structure-based medicinal chemistry approach to maintain healthy drug-discovery pipelines.
  • Monitoring, containment and treatment of drug resistant cases.
  • Bench to bedside translational research to evaluate new drugs and drug combinations.
  • Socioeconomic and public awareness programs in neglected tropical parasitic diseases.
  • Opportunities to develop multidisciplinary programs and current funding opportunities

The aim of this International conference is to bring participants from North, Central and South America together, as well as from other regions where tropical diseases are prevalent, to discuss new approaches to combat neglected tropical diseases. Another purpose is to elevate the awareness of neglected tropical diseases, particularly in Latin America, as well as to stimulate medicinal chemists in these countries to conduct research in the field by making contacts between laboratories in America and other parts of the world. With the latter in mind, one to one meetings between participants will be arranged.

World Chemistry Congress 2017


The 46th World Chemistry Congress of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC-2017), will be held in São Paulo on July 9-14, 2017.

With the theme, “Sustainability & Diversity Through Chemistry”, this wonderful and historic event will link all fields of Chemistry. The scientific program has been carefully prepared by the Organizing and Scientific Committees, providing a major coverage of the main areas of interest for chemists. The scientific program includes high-level scientific sessions, plenary lectures, parallel sessions, as well as poster presentations and young scientists’ workshops under 12 major topics, including over 100 symposia. The twelve major topics are: Analytical & Food Chemistry (AC), Chemistry Education (CE), Chemistry for Industry Innovation (CI), Chemical Synthesis (CS), Energy, Water and Environmental Sciences (EE), Green Chemistry and Biotechnology (GB), Inorganic and Structural Chemistry (IC), Macromolecules and Materials (MM), Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology (MB), Nano Science and Technology (NT), Natural Products and Biodiversity (NB), and Physical, Biophysical and Computational Chemistry (PC).

Abstract submission is open until Feb 3rd. For more info visit the website.
