Heterocyclic Chemistry

by Lisa McElwee-White

Amir Hoveyda, giving a plenary lecture at the 10th Annual Florida Heterocyclic and Synthetic Conference.

The 10th Annual Florida Heterocyclic and Synthetic Conference was held 8–11 March 2009 in Gainesville at the University of Florida. Attendees had the opportunity to participate in an excellent program that included 12 plenary lectures, 40 invited lectures, 5 short courses, and a poster session. Short courses were taught by William Dolbier (University of Florida) on synthesis of fluorinated compounds, John Joule (University of Manchester) on azoles, Ronald Castellano (University of Florida) on non-covalent interactions of aromatics and heterocycles in molecular recognition, Gordon Gribble (Dartmouth College) on the applications of metals in heterocyclic chemistry, and Girolamo Cirrincione (University of Palermo) on eight-membered heterocyclic rings.

Plenary lectures were presented by the following scientists:

  • Mike Martinelli, Arena Pharmaceuticals, USA
  • Chris Senanayake, Boehringer Ingelheim, Germany
  • Amir Hoveyda, Boston College, USA
  • Ben Feringa, University of Gröningen, The Netherlands
  • Janine Cossy, EPSCI, France
  • Frank Fang, Eisai Research Institute, USA
  • Stephen Martin, University of Texas, USA
  • Joel Hawkins, Pfizer, USA
  • Erick Carreira, ETH, Switzerland
  • Philip Kocienski, University of Leeds, UK
  • Koji Nakanishi, Columbia University, USA

The more than 175 attendees at the conference, included approximately 40 graduate students and postdocs; along with academic and industrial research chemists from more than 30 countries. Heterocyclic compounds are of particular importance to the pharmaceutical industry and many of the industrial delegates came from this area. The conference attracted a number of commercial exhibitors, including publishers, chemical suppliers, and instrument makers.

Lisa McElwee-White is a professor of Chemistry at the University of Florida and a former titular member of the Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry Division Committee.
