SciLifeLab course on “Biophysical methods in drug discovery” in Uppsala 180827-31, application deadline 26 May

The course on "Biophysical methods in drug discovery" provided by SciLifeLab 180827-31 in Uppsala will focus on different biophysical methods used for characterizing protein-ligand interactions in drug discovery projects. It will cover a range of biophysical methods used to characterize interactions between drug target proteins and potential inhibitory compounds, and how to use the information for lead generation. The course consists of lectures with active discussion from the participants, computer exercises, and demonstrations in the form of laboratory experiments.

Application deadline: 26 May 2018

NDPIA course “Mosquito-borne viruses and their vectors” 180611-14 in Umeå

The aim of this 2 ECTS NDPIA course in Umeå is to provide in depth understanding of virus-vector interaction and transmission dynamics of mosquito-borne viruses.
It will provide better understanding of mosquitoes as vectors of arboviruses most of which are zoonotic in nature and affect both humans and animals. The course will include various aspects of the mosquito vector including; ecology, biology, population genetics, competence, capacity and how these factors influence virus transmission to the susceptible host. The course will also cover surveillance, identification, diagnostics, prevention and control, as well as arboviruses.

Registration deadline: 180430
