Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 2nd Annual

Covalent Modifications & Induced Proximity

April 10, 2023 | 2:20PM-5:30PM PDT


Proximity is critical for certain biological interactions and in post-translational modifications such as, ubiquitination, phosphorylation, methylation, and acetylation. Chemically induced proximity is an emerging area of interest where covalent chemistries are being utilized to induce proximity to trigger biological processes such as protein degradation, protein stabilization, protein folding, chromatin regulation, and more. This symposium on Covalent Modifications & Induced Proximity brings together academic and industry scientists from medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, and proteomics groups to discuss the innovative chemistries and technologies that can be leveraged to induce proximity for mechanistic studies, as well as for therapeutic intervention.


Coverage will likely include:


  • Utilizing innovative covalent chemistries for inducing proximity
  • Case studies highlighting role of induced proximity in initiating cellular changes
  • Advances in tools for modeling and characterizing chemically induced proximity
  • Use of proximity inducers for dissecting kinetics and mechanisms of cellular pathways
  • Emerging use of induced proximity for designing new drugs


The deadline for priority consideration is September 23, 2022.


All proposals are subject to review by session chairpersons and/or the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the overall quality of the conference program. Additionally, as per Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s policy, a select number of vendors and consultants who provide products and services will be offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.


We hope you can join us for the 2 concurrent afternoon symposia during the first day of our 18th Annual Drug Discovery Chemistry event. Add on to your registration and attend the main event starting the next day. With two sets of 5 parallel conferences, you can also move back and forth to create your own agenda.
