This course covers the recent advances in discovery informatics, with a focus on the application of e-science to real life problems. Different scientific concepts and programs will be introduced and discussed, which are part of the modern drug, food supplement and ingredient discovery pipeline from target discovery & validation to lead discovery & optimization.
The morning sessions consist of keynote presentations from world renowned experts in conjunction with scientific talks from knowledgeable researchers from academia and industry. Keynote speakers:
- Dr. John Overington, Computational Chemical Biology, EMBL-EBI, Hinxton, UK
- Prof. Dr. Hugo Kubinyi, Former Head of Drug Design & Combinatorial Chemistry and Molecular Modelling, BASF AG, Ludwigshafen, Germany
- Dr. Ir. Fred van de Velde, NIZO food research BV, The Netherlands
- Prof. Dr. Peter Murray-Rust, Unilever Centre for Molecular Science Informatics, University of Cambridge, UK
The afternoon hands-on sessions will provide an opportunity to gain practical experience using industry standard software related to the morning's lectures.
- Prof. Dr. J. de Vlieg
- Dr. G. Schaftenaar
- Dr. T. Ritschel
This course is presented by the Computational Drug Discovery (CDD) group of the Centre for Molecular and Biomolecular Informatics (CMBI) at the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and supported by The Nederlands Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC) and The Netherlands eScience Center.
