Elsevier’s Tetrahedron Symposium is the recognised annual meeting and information point for reporting advances in Bioorganic & Organic Chemistry. The intention of this conference is to provide an intimate and relaxed environment, to stimulate fresh thinking and creative ideas, in a scientific field impacting so importantly on life and medical sciences.

The symposium will also highlight the key role of chemistry in the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents for human diseases.

Topics Include:

  • Chemical biology
  • Synthetic chemistry
  • Drug design and discovery
  • Nucleic acid chemistry
  • Nanochemistry and drug delivery

What to expect from the Symposium

  • Learn from internationally renowned researchers in a comprehensive programme covering all aspects of organic synthesis; bioorganic, medicinal and computational chemistry; molecular recognition and the organic chemistry of materials.
  • Understand the current state of research and the challenges to future discovery.
  • Present your latest research as a poster (or a possible oral presentation).
  • Network with the editors of the Tetrahedron journals, meet with international colleagues, visit the trade stands and grow your LinkedIn connections.
  • Experience the beautiful, vibrant city of Singapore in your spare time!
