        of tertiary nitrogen and heterocyclic scaffolds
       -Isis builds its libraries by a proprietary "solution phase,
        simultaneous addition of functionalities (SPSAF)" approach
       -Libraries generated are of low molecular weight, diverse,
        information rich and present various levels of constraint
        (linear, cyclic, spherical shapes) 
       -Versatile synthetic methodologies allow a variety of scaffolds
        (footprints) to be rapidly prepared 
       -Extensive libraries from libraries methodologies have been developed
       -Libraries can be rapidly prepared (less than 5 days) in
        250-1000 mg. quantities
       -Methodologies to selectively target RNA motifs with cationic,
        constrained tertiary nitrogen scaffolds are in progress

10:10 Synthesis On Soluble Polymers: Liquid Phase Parallel Synthesis Of
      Chemical Libraries
       -The "Liquid Phase Parallel Synthesis" combines strategic features
        of both solid phase synthesis and solution phase synthesis
       -This method uses a supporting polymer (polyethylene glycol) that is
        soluble in the reaction media and the polymer can be precipitated
        selectively for isolation and purification purposes
       -Excess reagents and byproducts were removed by simple filtration
       -This technology allows reactions to be followed by NMR and TLC
       -The use of PEG resin as a soluble support for the synthesis of small
        organic molecules is demonstrated by the synthesis of several chemical
        libraries

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.  The dinner is organized to promote greater after
hours social interaction among participants in a casual atmosphere - it
should be a lot of fun!  Please register by March 21 as the private
dining room will have limited capacity.    

To reserve your place at the conference, please complete the registration
form on the back of the brochure and fax it to the sponsor, Strategic
Research Institute, at 212-302-9850.  You may also register by phone
at 800-599-4950 (212-302-1800 outside the USA), by E-mail at
info@srinstitute.com or send the form to: SRI, 500 Fifth Ave., 11th floor,
New York, NY. 10110.

I look forward to meeting you, or seeing you again, on April 28.
