SCI's Young Chemists Panel
University of Cambridge
This event is no longer available for registration.
The area of structure-based drug design is focused on achieving stabilising and selective interactions between the ligand and the protein binding site. An understanding of how interactions behave in 3D and their relative energetics is therefore highly beneficial when assessing potential candidate molecules.
This one day event has been developed to address the area of molecular interactions and will provide the participants with a solid understanding of the various types of common interaction and how they are relevant in drug discovery. Lectures will be delivered by leading experts in the field, and topics will include the preferred geometries and energetics of interactions (such as hydrogen-bonds, aromatic interactions and halogen bonds) as well as bioisosterism and how to evaluate whether an observed interaction is important or not.
