Course on Emerging Computational Tools in Drug Design & Discovery @ IIT BHU, Varanasi [Oct 3-9]: Registrations Open!


Computational tools are highly indispensable in today’s drug design and discovery research. Early exploration of available chemical space for novel active compounds and early prediction of lead-like or drug-like properties, through computational approaches and tools, are the key steps in modern drug discovery research.
The course intends to provide a comprehensive understanding of various computational approaches and tools, to the young teachers and researchers working primarily in the area of drug design and discovery.


The tentative topics to be covered during the course include:

  • Molecular modeling methods
  • Ligand-based and structure-based drug design
  • Virtual screening and pharmacophore modeling
  • Molecular docking and molecular dynamics simulations
  • ADMET prediction and QSAR modeling, etc.
Who should attend?

Faculty members with the pharmacy or allied life science background from University/Engineering/Pharmacy colleges recognized by AICTE are eligible to attend the course. Participants from AICTE approved colleges may be eligible for AC 3-er to and fro travel fare by the shortest route and free boarding and lodging at IIT BHU guest house.
