Experimental and computational methods for enabling structure-based drug discovery

14th March 2019
Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre, Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, CB10 1RQ

Three-dimensional protein structures are arrived at using a range of techniques including X-ray crystallography, NMR, and electron microscopy. In addition, computational predictions of protein structures and their interactions with small-molecule drugs, biologics such as antibodies, and cell receptors, also play a crucial role in modern drug discovery projects. This meeting will explore the interplay between experimental and computational methods applied to the field of structure-based drug discovery with an aim to providing more insight into how these approaches can work together to accelerate the development of more effective drugs.

Our speakers, drawn from both industry and academia, will provide insights into successful strategies and emerging methodologies that are driving drug development programmes that make use of molecular structures. The speakers will address issues such as: what sort of structural data are most useful in drug design strategies?; how do you obtain structures for challenging targets such as membrane proteins?; what types of computational methods are currently used for prediction of protein-drug interactions and what are the gaps?; and, how are we harnessing the vast amount of data on protein-drug interactions to accelerate the development of new chemical entities?

This meeting will be of interest for anyone, from students to practicing professionals, who is curious about how structural information is used in drug discovery. We look forward to seeing you on March 14, 2019 at the Rosalind Franklin Pavilion, located on Wellcome Genome Campus at Hinxton near Cambridge.
