Drug Discovery & Medicinal Chemistry26/07/21
International Workshop Organized by COMSTECH in Collaboration with H. E. J. Research Institute of Chemistry, International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS), University of Karachi
This workshop is designed to discuss various aspects of design and development of anti-infective agents by using medicinal chemistry approaches, along with discussion on latest and outstanding developments in medicinal chemistry and rational drug design for the discovery of new anti-infective agents. Topics to be discussed in the workshop are:
Medicinal chemistry and the Drug Approval Process:
Early natural products and synthetic molecules used as drugs
Safety issues in the drugs
Modern drug discovery and approval process
Intellectual property issues with drugs
Structure of proteins Enzymes
Enzymatic activity and inhibition
Receptors and molecules that modulate their activity
Drug transport in the blood Clearance
Volume of distribution
Types of metabolic reactions
Genetic and population effects
Binding, Structure, and Diversity:
Intermolecular forces Drug-target complementarity
Molecular diversity and chemical libraries combinatorial chemistry
Lead Discovery: Drug screening Filtering hits to find leads:
Drug screening Filtering hits to find leads
Existing drugs and natural products as leads
Functional group replacements
This workshop is designed to address the interest of scientists and research scholars from different fields including Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, etc
