Drug Discovery & Development - 2024

Applications open : 11 March 2024, 09:00 AM

Applications close : 25 July 2024, 05:30 PM



The workshop on “Drug Discovery & Development” is being organized by FABA (Federation of Asian Biotech Associations) Academy (https://biofaba.org.in/) in collaboration with the Science Gurus (http://sciencegurus.org/), a US-based nonprofit organization and the University of Hyderabad (https://uohyd.ac.in/).

We are pleased to bring you this comprehensive workshop filled with enriching content to provide an opportunity for the participants to learn different aspects of the drug discovery and development process including drug repurposing with an emphasis on drugs for Covid-19, and intellectual property. In addition, the attendees will have the opportunity to learn from the experience of the success stories of Biotech and Pharma startups. The workshop also includes hands-on training modules in computational structure-based drug design, machine learning for biomedical drug discovery, genomics, and transcriptomics.

Drug discovery and development involve efforts carried out by a multidisciplinary team of experts in chemistry, biology, computational science, statistics, pharmacology, clinical sciences, etc. Based on molecular insights, specific genes/proteins (targets) responsible for causing a disease of interest are first identified and validated.

Then follows the drug discovery process wherein molecules which modulate targets activity are identified and characterized at various levels. Once a drug candidate shows promising therapeutic activity, the development process systematically evaluates the suitability of the drug candidate for human use, in terms of its potential therapeutic value for maximum benefit, while minimizing the potential adverse side effects.

Workshop Highlights

This workshop will be conducted online. Participants will have opportunities to present and discuss case studies and interact with the experts.

We look forward to your participation in the workshop.
