The 8th Cyprus Conference on New Methods in Drug Research
May 4-9, 1998
Chair: Alex Makriyannis (U. Conn. Storrs, USA)
Committee: N. Castagnoli (USA), J.P. Devlin (USA), U. Hacksell
(Sweden), L.H. Hurley (USA) and M. Abou-Gharbia (USA)
For the past seventeen years, this classic event has served
as the biennial opportunity for researchers and management
executives to interact, exchange views and philosophies,
preview cutting edge technologies in Drug Discovery and get
a glimpse of things to come. The format is the traditional
Gordon-style enhanced by the historical ambiance of Cyprus!
Both the scientific papers and the interests of the
participants are multidisciplinary and this mix, inevitably,
results in innovative new approaches and collaborations.
Half Day Technical Sessions:
* New Roles for Synthetic Chemistry in Drug Design (Chair:
Steve Hanessian (U. Montreal))
* Advances in Drug Receptor Research (Chair: Hendrik
Timmerman (Amsterdam Center for Drug Research))
* The Use of Computational, Biophysical and Biochemical
Methods (Chairs: Stephen Fesik (Abbott), Alex Makriyannis
(U. Conn. Storrs))
* Ultra-High Throughput Technologies in Discovery and
Development (Chair: Al Kolb (Packard Instrument))
* Micro- and Nanotechnologies in Measuring Biomolecular
Interactions (Chair: Herman Gaub (Ludwig Maximilians Univ)
* Computational-HTS Integration in Drug Discovery (Round
* Genomics-based Approaches in Discovery and
Structure-Function Correlations (Chair: Casey Case
* Novel Design Approaches in Combating Drug Resistance
(Chair: Lawrence Melvin (Amgen))
Conference Location Time and Registration:
The Conference will take place from Monday, May 4th
through Friday, May 9th 1998 at the five-star Hawaii Beach
Hotel, Limassol, Cyprus. Attendance is restricted to 150

Local accommodations and air/ground travel expenses are the
responsibility of the participant and can be arranged at the time
of registration. Post conference tours are also available; please inquire.
An important event, both as a refreshing midweek break and
as an opportunity for casual and productive collegial
interactions is the traditional Wednesday excursion to
historical and archeological sites of interest followed by a
memorable evening of Cypriot fare and entertainment.
