The Lille bioinformatics platform, bilille, is organizing a one-day symposium on the use of molecular modeling for computer-aided drug design.
Recent years have seen a rapid development of molecular modeling and docking techniques in combination with high-throughput protein crystallography. These novel methods have allowed many a success story in the computer-assisted discovery of new drugs and has helped structure-based drug design to become increasingly effective in the
development of target-based therapies. During this one-day symposium, a panel of experts will introduce, discuss and illustrate these techniques.
Confirmed speakers are :
* Martine Prevost - Université Libre de Bruxelles
* Eric Henon - Université de Reims
* Anna Gaulton - EMBL
* Philippe Chavatte - Faculté de Pharmacie, Université de Lille
* Henriette Willems - Takeda Cambridge
* Jerome de Ruyck - UGSF, Université de Lille
There is no registration fee, but registration is required for participation. The number of places is limited. Lunch is offered.
