The Autumn School "Chemical Biology" has its roots in the interdisciplinary approach of the Konstanz Research School Chemical Biology, established within the German Excellence Initiative at the cutting edge of chemistry, biology and computer science.

The programme comprises three consecutive lecture courses (Combinatorial and High Throughput Technologies, Computational Life Science, Bioconjugation Chemistry) followed by an international conference on Chemical Biology. In the courses, experts in the respective fields will introduce fundamental methods and techniques. Subsequently, the participants will join the "Konstanz Symposium Chemical Biology" with internationally renowned speakers. Poster sessions and social events will complete this event, travel funds are available.

The overall aim of the Autumn School is to get together graduate students from all over the world working in the area of Chemical Biology and to foster the exchange of their scientific work, thereby establishing personal contacts and scientific networking.
