Call for Papers (ACS Fall Meeting 2018)

The More the Merrier: Combine Drugs Together

256th ACS National Meeting
Boston, August 19-23, 2018
CINF Division

Dear Colleagues, we are organizing a symposium at the Fall ACS meeting in Boston focusing on computational, experimental and hybrid approaches to investigate the effect of drugs combinations on biological systems and characterizing phenomena such as synergy and antagonism. The aim of this symposium is to explore fundamental principles that underlie effective combination treatments and synergistic drug behavior across different diseases; to reveal the possible side effects of combination treatment; to investigate possible mechanisms of drugs synergy, additivity and antagonism; to develop a new computational approaches for prediction of these effects.

We welcome contributions related to the identification of promising or novel drug combinations using to treat the rare/neglected disease as well as socially significant diseases (cancer, HIV, etc.), approaches to characterizing drug synergy scores and novel statistical and machine learning methods to predict and prioritize drug combinations as well as to identify side effects caused by drug mixtures.

The deadline for abstract submissions is March 20, 2018. All abstracts should be submitted via MAPS. If you have any questions feel free to contact Alexey or myself.
