Structure-Based Drug Design
Venue: The Revere Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Jun 19, 2013||End Date/Time: Jun 21, 2013|
The 13th Structure-Based Drug Design conference will feature the development of in silico technology as well as experimental approaches useful for accurately predicting and modeling the structures of proteins in structure-based drug design efforts. In addition, examples of successful applications of such technology approaches to genome-to-drug lead investigations are showcased.
Topics to be covered may include:
- Recent research on important targets that are amenable to structure-based drug design, such as GPCRs - Design of therapeutic agents that interact with protein-protein interactions hot spots as targets - Large-scale informatics framework that integrate functional, structural and expression information for contextual drug discovery - Mining the bacterial genome for novel bioactive compounds - Epigenetics in drug discovery - Cellular environment including solvation in drug discovery - Fragment-based design - Other interesting topics
