A welcome message,
On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, it is our pleasure to announce the XXVI edition of the National Meeting in Medicinal Chemistry (XXVI NMMC 2019), which will be held in Milan on the occasion of the 40th anniversary from the establishment of the Italian Medicinal Chemistry Division (Divisione di Chimica Farmaceutica) of the Italian Chemical Society (Società Chimica Italiana).

The XXVI NMMC, which continues a long-standing tradition of excellent science in the major research areas of medicinal chemistry, will bring together scientists from industry, academia and government institutions across Europe and throughout the world. The meeting will create a forum for in-depth, informed discussions, regarding both basic science and applications in medicinal chemistry.

As in the last editions, the meeting will be joint with the 12th Young Medicinal Chemists Symposium “Nuove Prospettive in Chimica Farmaceutica” (NPCF12), mainly directed to graduate, post-graduate, PhD students and young researchers operating in Academia or Industry.

The XXVI NMMC will start on July 16th 2019 with the Registration Desk and the Opening Ceremony at the Aula Magna of the University of Milan – Via Festa del Perdono 7, and will continue there from 17th to 19th. From 1958, the University is based in the “Ca’ Granda”, the name once used to indicate the huge “Ospedale Maggiore”, the biggest hospital in Milan until 1939. The “Ca’ Granda”, located in downtown Milan, is a beautiful example of Lombard Renaissance architecture.

The Scientific Program, organized in two parallel sessions, will consist of oral presentations (plenary and keynote lectures) and a limited number of short communications. Special sessions will be devoted to poster presentations.

We cordially invite the scientific community to actively contribute to this scientific event, organized under the auspices of the University of Milan in our more than two thousand years old city, Mediolanum, which became a metropolis at the beginning of the 4th century B.C. Milan, which hosted the Universal Expo in 2015, is world-renowned as one of the capitals of innovation, science and art-based events, finance and business, opera, design and fashion. Together with a stimulating scientific program, all participants will enjoy the exciting city atmosphere.

We really look forward to welcoming you in Milan.
