The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Biochemical Society are holding a one day workshop on “Tools and Strategies to Find Chemical Probes for Your Protein – The Role of Computer-Aided Drug Discovery.” The event will be at Charles Darwin House, London, on 15th November 2013.
Aimed at developing analytical tools for the life sciences, this event will be of interest to biologists facing challenges in finding new chemical reagents for understanding biological mechanisms, as well as computational biologists and chemists. The workshop will include discussions on molecular docking for probe discovery, virtual screening, and generating chemical probes, amongst other topics. This will be a fruitful opportunity for those interested in developing interdisciplinary collaborations in this exciting field.
The Royal Society of Chemistry publishes a range of titles in this area, which would provide an excellent accompaniment to this meeting. Titles such as Physico-chemical and computational approaches to drug discovery (2012) provide a grounding in the computational aspects, while the more recently published Computational approaches to nuclear receptors (2013) will interest those more specifically interested in applying these principles to the nucleus. Highly relevant to those with pharmaceutical and biomedical interests, Drug design strategies (2012) and Biotherapeutics (2013) give in depth coverage of state of the art developments in these fast changing fields.
The deadline for abstract submissions is 16th September 2013. Flash poster presentation slots are currently still available.
