Insilico Drug Discovery & Designing: Insights of Protein - Ligand Interactions

Conference Series LLC is delighted to invite you to attend the 5th Annual Congress on Chemistry in Drug Discovery & Designing, one of its remarkable Pharmaceutical conferences, to be held during April 16-17, 2018 in Dubai, UAE emphasizing on recent areas of more optimized research techniques like rational and computer aided drug designing for the Discovery, Designing and Development of new drugs than by traditional hit and trial method. Drug Discovery Congress 2018 is also glad to welcome all the interested members globally to the Workshop on "In-silico Drug Discovery and Designing Insights Protein Ligand Interactions being conducted by Dr. Asif Naqvi" on 17th April, 2018 at JW Marriott Hotel Dubai, UAE.

"In-silico Drug Discovery and Designing Insights Protein Ligand Interactions being conducted by Dr. Asif Naqvi"


The simple answer to what's holding the industry back in terms of adoption of latest drug discovery techniques is Education. There simply aren't enough individuals trained on the use of Proteomics, Virtual Screening, Molecular Docking, Simulations, Dynamics and ADMET- multidisciplinary approaches, which is why we continue to offer courses, for both novice and experienced users, on the use of this technology as it applies to their research functions.

Structure-based drug design seeks to identify and optimize specific attractive interactions between two partner molecules in biological systems between ligands and their host molecules, typically proteins. The use of computers accelerates the process of drug design which is a time intensive process, and also reduces the cost of whole process.

This 1 day training course will focus on the use of efficient technologies used in the discovery & designing of Drugs on the basis of the biological targets critical to the disease condition. During this course, you will be introduced to basic principles of Rational Drug Design along with Proteomics in Drug Discovery. The course includes hands-on exercises in the Structure based drug design approach.
