|The exhibition days of the conference are over, but the meeting is still in full swing here in Boston. The Division of Medicinal Chemistry talks this morning included a stream on recent advances in drug discovery and development to combat antibiotic resistance. This featured a wide range of new techniques to combat the pressing issue of antibiotic resistance; Concepción González-Bello (Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain) described her research into developing drugs to disable previously unexplored key enzymes and Ruben Tommasi (Entasis Therapeutics, MA, USA) described obstacles facing those trying to discover new antibiotics. |
Today also featured some first-time disclosures of clinical candidates, ranging from treatments for Parkinson's disease dementia, Crohn's disease, malaria, a novel once-weekly HIV-1 treatment and heart disease.
Rain won't keep us down this morning! Time for some First Time Disclosures! #ACSBostonIn the Division of Inorganic Chemistry, a stream of talks focused on DNA, RNA and inorganic drugs. Rianne Lord (University of Bradford, UK) presented twice here, focusing on organometallic iridium(III) complexes for colorectal cancers and ruthenium(III) and rhodium(III) dihalide complexes. The Division of Biological Chemistry afternoon symposia consisted of a series of talks on 'Frontiers in organofluorine research for biochemistry and drug discovery', co-chaired by Ryan Altman (The University of Kansas, KA, USA) and William Pomerantz (University of Minnesota, MN, USA).
Talks 2 of 4 done in the same session! 😅 Next: talk on vanadium anticancer complexes (room 212) and evening poster on Ti/Al complexes for ROP (INORG 702). Putting @UoBChem on the map! #ACSBoston #busiestdayyet #inorganicchemistry
