The contribution of computational methodologies to drug discovery is no longer a matter of dispute and the major world’s pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies use computational design tools. Computer-aided drug design comprises computational methods and resources that are used to facilitate the design and discovery of new therapeutic solutions.
This summer school will cover all the main computational techniques used in drug discovery, supplying a basic level of knowledge of this research field. This course will be divided into theoretical and practical lessons and will allow the participants to independently develop their own computational studies.
Who can apply
The school is open to all students that possess a basic background of chemistry, biology or medicinal chemistry. Undergraduates and PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and senior researchers from Universities, research institutes, clinics and industries are welcome.
