Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry 2015

Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry 2015The 2015 Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry conference (www.gdch.de/medchem2015), organized by the Medicinal Chemistry Division of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) together with the Division of Pharmaceutical & Medicinal Chemistry of the German Pharmaceutical Society (DPhG), and the Division of Medicinal Chemistry & Chemical Biology of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCG), was held last week at the Philipps University, Marburg (Germany). The conference was attended by approximately 200 researchers from industry and academia, and featured 25 excellent presentations from world-class leaders in fields such as RNA therapeutics, an area of research for which Marburg is particularly well known, CNS/neurodegeneration, and anti-infectives. In addition, 40 excellent posters were on display throughout the conference, and coffee breaks and poster sessions afforded all participants the opportunity to review and discuss the exciting science being presented.

Nuska Tschammer (www.medchem.fau.de/tschammerlab.shtml) and Peter Kolb (www.kolblab.org) were each awarded the GDCh/DPhG Innovation Prize for work on allosteric modulators of chemokine receptors and tailoring the selectivity of GPCR–ligand interactions, respectively. PhD prizes were awarded to Christoph Nitsche (University of Heidelberg), Johannes Schiebel (Philipps University, Marburg), and Dominik Thimm (University of Bonn).

The 2016 Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry conference will take place on March 13–16, 2016 in Bonn (Germany). Further details are available on the conference website: www.gdch.de/medchem2016.

Issue 03/2015 Editor's Picks: Natural Products

Issue 03/2015 Editor's Picks: Natural ProductsNatural products have long been a source of therapeutic agents, either by direct use or through the inspiration of synthetic molecules, and they continue to grab the attention of medicinal chemists. Recently, a novel natural product isolated from soil (Lewis et al., Nature 2015, 517, 455--459) made headlines in the mainstream media, and Chemistry of Natural Resources is the theme of the 249th ACS National Meeting & Exposition being held in Denver (USA) toward the end of March.

Natural products have potential in nearly every disease area, as exemplified by a number of contributions in this issue of ChemMedChem. In particular, the Full Paper by Inoue et al. describes the optimization of the naturally occurring linear peptide gramicidin A to generate an equipotent derivative with improved selectivity. In a similar optimization effort using a natural product, Marco-Contelles, Ismaili, et al. investigate tacrine--ferulic acid hybrids as improved therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease.
