1 day "Indo-Hungarian Symposium" on "Recent Advances in Chemistry and Biology 2017

Event Description

Objectives and Scope of the Symposium Host Institution: Partner Institution: The primary objective of this symposium is to provide a common platform and ample opportunities to the researchers in the areas of chemical and biological sciences and other related areas to interact with each other. This event will provide a forum for in-depth assessment of the challenges involved in the dynamic and fast moving fields of organic synthesis, catalysis, drug discovery, peptide synthesis and medicinal chemistry. Medicinal Chemistry is by nature an interdisciplinary science, and practitioners have a strong background in Organic Chemistry, which must eventually be coupled with a broad understanding of biological concepts related to cellular drug targets. Scientists in the area of Medicinal Chemistry are principally researchers, working as part of an interdisciplinary team that use their knowledge of chemistry especially chemical principles and their synthetic ability for effective design of therapeutic agents. This symposium is of multidisciplinary nature and is intended to expose students and faculty members to the thrust areas of research with emphasis on indigenous problems. The main objective of the one-day IndoHungarian symposium is to sensitize and stimulate the young minds and create awareness among young research scholars and scientists to bring out the best among the various frontiers of chemical and biological sciences. This symposium will be able to bring together the undergraduate, postgraduate students, doctoral students and faculty members on a common platform to deliberate and discuss recent advances in chemical and biological research. The following main topics will be covered during the symposium: §§Organic Synthesis §Medicinal Chemistry §Catalysis §Drug Delivery §Peptide Synthesis §Nanobiotechnology Carbohydrate Chemistry Miranda House was established on 7 March 1948 by the then Vice Chancellor of University of Delhi, Sir Maurice Gwyer. Miranda House chronicles the history of women’s education in India. The college is reputed for providing quality liberal education in social sciences, humanities and basic sciences to more than 3500 students. Its strength lies in the sweeping range of courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. MH has established a strong research culture. In 2008, DST invited MH to set up the DSKC in project mode. The entire science faculty became associated with this initiative to set up state-of-art laboratories, initiate Uundergraduate research and science education outreach activities. The one week long DST INSPIRE Mentorship Programme organized each year for more than 250 top one percentile school students from about 40 schools, with active help from faculty and hundred Uundergraduate mentors is highly regarded. The enhanced facilities have given a head start to research by faculties and they have used initial work as basis for setting up research in frontier areas, with award of substantial grants from funding agencies to the tune of Rs.2446.20 lakh. The college was invited by CSIR to set up the Open Source Drug Discovery (OSDD) programme. Five science departments have received grants under the DBT Star College Scheme. The college has been awarded 22 DU Innovation Projects and 3 DU Star Innovation Projects with funding of Rs. 330.95 lakh since 2011, which is amongst the highest for any college. The University of Debrecen is a university located in Debrecen, Hungary. It is the oldest continuously operating institution of higher education in Hungary (since 1538). The university has a well established programme in the English language for international students, particularly in the Medical field, which first established education in English in 1986. There are nearly 4000 international students studying at the university. The Research Group of Antibiotics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences was founded in 1961, as an affiliate member of the Department of Chemistry, University of Debrecen. In 1997 the University and the Research Group established the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry. The Department has become an independent organization within the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2003. Most of the studies in the antibiotic field were carried out in close cooperation with the associates of the BIOGALPharmaceutical Works and of the University Medical School of Debrecen
