CHI and Bio-IT World Present the Twelfth Annual
Structure-Based Drug Design: Predicting Biological and Kinetic Profiles from

June 6-8, 2012

About the event:

Structure-based drug design took nearly two decades of multiple, parallel
technological improvements to arrive at its 
current mainstream position in medicinal chemistry. Developments in computer
graphics, high-power radiation sources, 
computational processing power, refinement protocols, virtual screening and
crystallography were all necessary to 
create the environment for rapid, iterative structure-based drug discovery.
Given the crisis facing the pharmaceutical 
industry in the translation of early stage drug discovery results, a
different set of tools, concerned with algorithms 
and methods for developing best in class drugs that engage biological
targets with kinetically optimized potency 
and selectivity will need to be refined. In this conference, we bring to
focus recent advancements in this field from 
an experienced faculty.


Keynote Address:

David Swinney, Ph.D., CEO, Institute for Rare and Neglected Diseases Drug
Discovery (iRND3)
