What Drug Hunters Need to Know About Computational Chemistry

The ability to exploit information through computational chemistry is vital for any modern drug hunter wishing to develop a therapeutic approach more efficiently and effectively. This new meeting will focus on conceptual understanding of key topics, from basic theory to applied case studies. Topics range from cheminformatics and model building to computational-driven drug design and structural understanding.

Join us on 3-4 October 2023.
