In 2009, EFMC launched a series of short courses aimed to favour cultural and scientific growth of the medicinal chemistry community and organised with affordable fees for participation. Topic of the second short course will be "Safety and Attrition".
This intensive course is intended for scientists working in the field, and the presentations will be given by senior scientists both from industry and academia. The number of participants will be limited to 35, to favour in depth discussion. Should the number of applications exceed the maximum, preference will be given to applicants from EFMC adhering countries and employees of EFMC corporate members. Upon special request to the organizers (only based on financial conditions and supported by an argued recommendation of the head of the department of the applicant) a limited number (maximum 3) applicants from academia may be admitted at a reduced fee.
