Structural Biology and Drug Discovery Conference 2010
Venue: The Ocean Coral
|Event Date/Time: Dec 04, 2010||End Date/Time: Dec 07, 2010|
X-ray, NMR and other biophysical techniques, as well as computational biology approaches such as virtual screening, are being exploited and candidate drugs developed in this way are in the clinic.
This symposium will discuss general principles of structure-guided drug discovery developed over the past decade. It will review recent developments in industry and academia for membrane targets, such as receptors and channels, and complex multiprotein systems involved in cell regulation and signaling, where protein-protein interactions and allosteric sites have often proved challenging. It will also review progress in targeting neglected diseases, particularly infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria.
