BioFocus to Host Free Webinar on “Unleashing the Power of Computational Chemistry in Hit Finding Campaigns”
News May 07, 2010
BioFocus invites drug discovery researchers to join its free webinar entitled ‘unleash the power of computational chemistry in hit finding campaigns’, to be held on Thursday 27th May at 15.00 GMT Summer Time. As an educational webinar, attendees will learn how computational chemistry tools enable cost- and time-efficient high-throughput screening (HTS) campaigns.
Topics covered will include: statistical methods to identify more active scaffolds and strengthen the structure-activity relationship (SAR) basis for follow-up activities; structure- and ligand-based compound selection methods; and chemoinformatic tools. Participants will also get the opportunity to view case studies detailing how these approaches facilitate high hit rates, leading to increased success.
The ideal drug is one that only affects the exact cells and neurons it is designed to treat, without unwanted side effects. This concept is especially important when treating the delicate and complex human brain. Now, scientists have revealed a mechanism that could lead to this kind of long-sought specificity for treatments of strokes and seizures.READ MORE
