Workshop Details
Accelerating Reaction Discovery
07/17/2023 - 07/21/2023
Meeting Description:

Charged with the mission of expanding chemical space and finding new small molecules that can function as chemotherapeutics and/or chemical probes, chemists are searching for methods to accelerate and broaden the reaction discovery process. This process has traditionally been guided by the needs of natural product synthesis and has focused on one chemical transformation at a time. The challenges associated with accelerating reaction discovery is best realized via a multidisciplinary approach combining theory and experiment. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together a group of chemists with diverse interests (computational, analytical, mechanistic and synthetic) with a common goal of accelerating reaction discovery. Attendance will be limited to approximately 15 people, all of whom will present their research. The presentations are intended to be highly interactive and not limited to the traditional 45-60 minute format. This will enable a depth of discussion not available in any other meeting venue.


IMPORTANT NOTE: While the other lodging options have an early bird deadline of February 15th, the Avant Stay condos have an early bird deadline of February 1.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
