The MGMS’s first ECR Workshop Initiative meeting, “Modeling Photoinduced Processes in Molecular Systems”, at will take place at Imperial College, London, 6-7 Feb, 2020.
June 17-19 2020, The Queen’s University, Belfast, U.K.
The MGMS is pleased to announce 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.
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.

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:
MGMS Young Modellers’ Forum 2018 was held at University of Greenwich on 30th November 2018.
