At this year's Frontiers in Medicinal Chemistry meeting in Vienna, organized by the German Chemical Society (GDCh), Tonia Kirschner from the Rauh group was honored with an award for her poster presentation.

Ms. Kirschner presented her results on novel covalent inhibitors for the KRas G13C mutant, which is relevant in cancer development and remains largely unexplored. Within their previous PhD work, structure-based drug design was used to obtain small molecule compounds that bind for the first time into the allosteric switch-II pocket of KRas G13C and react covalently with the cysteine residue.

The annual international symposium provides exchange for academia and industry on recent developments, new approaches and cutting-edge technologies in the field of medicinal chemistry and drug discovery.

Two of our PhD students had the honor to present their recent results at the Forum for Translational Research in Sarcoma (FORTRESS) meeting in Essen, Germany.

It was an ideal platform to share insight into our interdisciplinary approach towards innovative therapeutic strategies
for GIST by combining structural biology and organic chemistry - a project that emerged directly from the successes of the DDDH initiative.

Thanks again for the great organization and the opportunity to meet outstanding scientists, exchange exciting ideas and get in touch with new collaboration partners!
