The Advanced in silico Drug Design workshop/challenge (30.1.-3.2.2023) is focused on using in silico tools and approaches in drug design. We will cover both structure-based drug design (molecular docking, molecular dynamics, structural bioinformatics tools) and ligand-based drug design (QSAR, pharmacophores, deep learning) with lectures and on-hand tutorials. Last day you can try your skills on the ligand selection challenge.

The meeting will be in a hybrid format. Lectures and tutorial files will be available online, but the on-hand tutorials and challenge will be only on-site.

Register at  Registration is open till 31st December 2022 or till the filling up of space.

Attendance of the event is free of charge. The lecture room holds up to 36 seats. Registrations with poster presentations will be prioritized.


Try to solve our Ligand selection problem – will you be able to find the actives from the ligand pool or generate a new one?

Participation in the Challenge is an exam requirement for Advanced Rational Drug Design (KFC/ADD – 4 ECTS credits)
