Dear Colleague: I hope you will be able to join us for an exciting and informative conference on Solid & Solution Phase Combinatorial Synthesis in New Orleans, LA on April 28-29, 1997. This is a "nuts & bolts", interdisciplinary meeting organized to provide the pharmaceutical chemist an in-depth analysis of both solid and solution phase methods and techniques for the synthesis, analysis and evaluation of combinatorial libraries. The conference is designed to enable you to do a side-by-side comparison of a variety of combinatorial techniques currently utlized for drug discovery and to explore some of the emerging techniques in this rapidly evolving field. Each section is carefully designed to take you through the steps involved in automated high-throughput synthesis and to highlight the challenges that are yet to be overcome. The meeting is set up to maximize your opportunity to compare and contrast the relative merits of the available methods in terms of your own research needs. Some of the highlights include: -Small Molecule Synthesis of Mixtures -Encoding and Deconvolution Methods -Small Molecule Synthesis of Single Compounds -Methods for Compound Characterization And Analysis -Automation -Synthesis And Post-Synthesis Informatics -Automated Purification Methods You are also cordially invited to attend the optional wine-tasting dinner at New Orleans famous Antoine's Restaurant on April 28 after the first day's presentations.
