XIth Mexican Reunion on Theoretical Physical Chemistry

For over a decade these meetings have gathered theoretical chemists every year to share and comment their current work and to also give students the opportunity to interact with experienced researchers, some of which in turn were even students of Prof. Robert Parr, Prof. Richard Bader or Prof. Per Olov Löwdin. This year the Mexican Meeting on Theoretical Physical Chemistry took place last weekend in Toluca, where CCIQS is located. You can find links to this and previous meetings here. We participated with a poster which is presented below (in Spanish, sorry) about our current research on the development of calixarenes and tia-calixarenes as drug carriers. In this particular case, we presented our study with the drug IMATINIB (Gleevec as branded by Novartis), a powerful tyrosinkynase inhibitor widely employed in the treatment of Leukaemia.

The International Journal of Quantum Chemistry is dedicating an issue to this reunion. As always, this meeting posed a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends, teachers, and colleagues as well as to make new acquaintances; my favourite session is still the beer session after all the seminars! Kudos to María Eugenia “Maru”  Sandoval-Salinas for this poster and the positive response it generated.

Computational and theoretical chemist in his early forties, in love with life, science, baseball, and literature. Science literacy makes us responsible citizens, it is therefore a scientific duty to talk, write, and engage with the general public; as Feynman said, if you find science boring, your learning from the wrong teacher.

  1. Muy de acuerdo con su comentario! por lo menos encuentro en usted otro químico teórico con piel de romanticismo.. la mia está muy transparente..y adoramos un buen vino..yo, especialmente los chilenos que son de mi hermoso pais. Grande abrazo de Claudio.

    • Mi estimado Claudio, gracias por tus comentarios ¿que sería de la actividad humana sin el romanticismo de llevarla a cabo? eso nos distingue del resto del reino animal, ¿no crees? Ojalá que en algún congreso podamos reunirnos a compartir unos vinos de tu tierra y de la mía.
      Un abrazo de vuelta y ¡salud!
