This course provided by SciLifeLab will focus on different biophysical methods used for characterising 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 methods include, but are not limited to those offered at the three SciLifeLab facilities. The course consists of lectures with active discussion from the participants, computer exercises, and demonstrations in the form of laboratory experiments.
Course fee: SEK 1800
Application deadline: 26 May 2018
The course is open for current and potential facility users such as PhD students, postdocs, group leaders and core facility staff in need of skills in biophysical methods, within all Swedish universities. Priority will be given to researchers already involved in specific drug discovery projects, but participants with a broad interest in the techniques and their application for life science research are also welcome to apply, and can attend if space allows.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own research questions, protein samples and data to analyse. It should be stated in the application and the course leaders will select those deemed suitable as case studies for the course.
NDPIA members who are admitted to the course (after applying via SciLifeLab as indicated above) can apply for NDPIA co-funding of travel/accommodation for participating in the course by filling out the form below.
N.B. course fees are not co-funded by the programme.
