7th SCS-Syngenta Symposium 2024

Welcome to the 7th edition of the SCS-Syngenta Symposium: "Unlocking Innovation through Chemical Biology"

This exciting event will feature the latest advances in Chemical Biology, covering drug target validation and mode of action elucidation, chemical inducers of proximity for protein degradation and beyond, mechanistic investigations of cellular processes and drug discovery success stories enabled by Chemical Biology. We look forward to exploring together opportunities to innovate across scientific disciplines and create breakthrough discoveries that address the biggest challenges of our times. The lunchtime poster session will provide an excellent opportunity for participants to exchange ideas and strengthen the links between industrial research and academic laboratories.

Poster presenters automatically participate in the Best Presentation Award Program sponsored by Helvetica Chimica Acta. Helvetica will honor two winners in the category Best Poser Presentation with a certificate and 100CHF cash each.
