Elsevier's Tetrahedron Symposium is the recognised annual meeting and information point for reporting advances in Bioorganic & Organic Chemistry. The intention of this conference is to provide an intimate and relaxed environment, to stimulate fresh thinking and creative ideas, in a scientific field impacting so importantly on life and medical sciences. The symposium will also highlight the key role of chemistry in the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents for human diseases. Each event brings together over 400 leading individuals to discuss the most relevant issues at that moment. The symposium is run in conjunction with Elsevier's leading biochemical journals.
