nline Event

The Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society was formed in 1981 to bring together scientists working in different fields of study who have a common interest in molecular modelling and graphics. This year, to celebrate 40th birthday of the society, we would like to invite you to participate in our half-day interactive event. Confirmed speakers include: 

There will be opportunities for poster presentations. During the meeting we will also try to identify major developments in the field in the last 40 years.  Participants with the most important and original entries will win a prize. At the end of the day we will hold the MGMS Annual General Meeting. Everyone is welcome!

Postponed: “Computational Drug Design: A tribute Frank Blaney” Meeting

June 17-19 2020, The Queen’s University, Belfast, U.K.

Given the increasing seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, the MGMS has decided to postpone our scientific meeting to honor the life and work of Dr Frank Blaney, a well-known computational chemist who worked for many years in the pharmaceutical industry.

Frank was a pioneer within the world of molecular modelling, particularly with respect to Drug Discovery. Not only did he contribute greatly to promoting science within academia but also in advancing commercial sectors for Drug Discovery.  Frank was actively involved in the development of approaches to model membrane bound proteins such as GPCRs, ion channels and transporters, and the application of these approaches in drug discovery. Frank was a founding member of the Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society (MGMS), and over the years worked in a number of academic and commercial institutions including Oxford University, Queen’s University Belfast, as well as Beecham Pharmaceuticals, GSK and Heptares.

Announcing the AMMA MM2019 Conference

We are pleased to announce the Australasian chapter of the MGMS, AMMA (the Association of Molecular Modellers of Australasia), is organizing their premier conference on molecular modelling from December 5-8, 2019. It will be held on the beautiful resort island of Bintan (Indonesia), around an hour’s ferry ride from Singapore.

For more information, see https://mm2019.bii.a-star.edu.sg.

This is the first time that the MM conference is being hosted in Asia, and it will bring together an international audience at all stages of their careers. It will also feature the award lecture by the 2019 winner of the AMMA Medal. Themes of the conference will include:
