Medicinal chemistry has evolved into a highly interdisciplinary field, enhanced by the collaborative efforts of experts from a wide spectrum of specialist areas, from chemoinformaticians to chemical biologists. MedChemNet, powered by FSG connect, aims to provide a communal space where industry and academic professionals can come together to discuss the latest research and developments, share thoughts and opinions, and build valuable international relationships. Ultimately, we hope this dynamic network will provide a catalyst to accelerate progress and encourage collaboration in this ever changing field.

MedChemNet is largely based on content generated by the network’s users and is designed to provide experts with a platform to collaborate, showcase their work and share news and their perspectives on the field.
