About the Event

Structure Assisted Development of Novel Therapeutics

Three-dimensional structures of important proteins serve as critical starting point to design molecules that can modulate the function of the target proteins as desired. In addition, the three dimensional structures of proteins in complex with lead molecules enable the improvement of the various parameters associated with a successful drug. The meeting will provide in-depth knowledge regarding the structural methods utilized to discover new lead molecules for development of novel therapeutics. The knowledge disseminated during this conference will allow these researchers to exploit the structural data generated in their laboratory to discover lead molecules for the development of novel therapeutics against a variety of diseases.
