The PIRAMID – Protein Interactions in Rational Approaches for Medicinal Innovative Drugs, research programme is organizing a symposium on September 23-24, 2021, in Nantes.

For two days, the symposium will bring together chemists, biologists, modellers and bioinformaticians carrying out their research in the field of PPIs, and will take place according to the following highlights:

  • 4 plenary conferences:

—> Dr Philippe ROCHE, Aix-Marseille University – “A Brief History of PPIs”,

—> Dr Isabelle KRIMM, Lyon 1 University – “NMR-guided and fragment-based design of protein-protein interaction inhibitors. Application to CK2 kinase”,

—> Pr Jana SOPKOVA-DE OLIVEIRA SANTOS, University of Caen Normandie – “Structure-guided design of MCL-1 inhibitors”,

—> Dr Fanny ROUSSI, Paris-Saclay University – “Conception of Natural-Inspired Small-Molecule Inhibitors of Bcl-2 Family Proteins”.

  • 5 reports / prospects by axis regarding the research carried out during the 5 years of the programme will be presented.

  • 8 communications from young researchers. A prize for the best oral presentation will be awarded to one laureate at the closing of the Symposium.

Access to the symposium is free of charge but registration is required before September 15, 2021 on the Website:
