3–8 September 2018 Designᴵᵀ-TO-LEAD 1st Computational Medicinal Chemistry Workshop
Designᴵᵀ-TO-LEAD is the specialized WorkShop, organized in City of Kragujevac, Republic of Serbia, with the aim to contribute in spreading knowledge in the field of Medicinal Chemistry and Rational Drug Design by means of employment of computer and computational techniques. Designᴵᵀ-TO-LEAD will cover the main computational techniques currently used in the drug discovery, process supplying a basic level of knowledge of this field. All the thought computational approaches will focus mainly on the development of three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationships (3-D QSAR) and related tools. Designᴵᵀ-TO-LEAD is structured for students of Chemistry, Pharmacy, and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, PhD students and PostDoc of all disciplines involved in Medicinal Chemistry, as well as for Academics and industry involved in providing medicinal and pharmaceutical services. The contribution of computational methodologies to drug discovery is no longer a matter of dispute and all major World’s pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies use computational design tools. Computer-aided drug design encompasses computational methods and resources that are used to facilitate the design and discovery of new bioactive chemical entities. Designᴵᵀ-TO-LEAD is organized by Professors Milan Mladenovic and Rino Ragno (academic editor of Molecules).
