This is a 1 ECTS instructive course in protein structure and drug design given at Lund University. Participants will get the opportunity to gain deeper understanding and hands-on knowledge about protein-ligand interactions, compound docking and structure in drug design. Registration deadline – 1 December, 2015.

Overview of course content:
Day 1
Lecture: Protein-ligand interactions and drug design. Structure-based drug design (SBDD): Hit identification, hit optimisation lead generation
Tutorial: In silico screening and compound docking
Day 2
Lecture: Structural aspect of protein synthesis inhibition by antibiotics
Tutorial: Assessment and analysis of docking results

Maximum number of participants: 10
