Subject: 06.07.03 Drug Discovery Design & Planning Methods, Oxford University, UK
We are holding a hands-on 5 Day eCheminfo Advanced Training Week for chemists and informaticians working in drug discovery the week of 3-7 July 2006 at the Chemistry Research Laboratory, Oxford University, Oxford, UK. The week will consist of interactive pragmatic workshops ed by leading experts and industry practitioners. We will work through in detail and discuss practical examples, methods and emerging techniques. Topics to be covered include Virtual Screening & Docking, Structure-based Drug Design, Reaction Planning & Library Design, Latest advances in ADME Predictive Toxicology, Data Analysis & Visualisation and Integration of Cheminformatics & Bioinformatics Tools & Data. These workshops are aimed to provide a set of stimulating workshops using latest advanced modelling techniques of relevance to chemists, life scientists and modellers working in drug discovery. Participants should return to their labs with new ideas, best practices and software experiences to maximise productivity in their own drug discovery research activities. Workshop groups will study problems with hands-on examples using leading-edge software and discuss complex issues highlighted by examples and case studies presented by instructors. Software packages and an IT classroom will be used by instructors and participants to work through the problems. Participants may propose problems and issues to the faculty ahead of the workshop week and can also bring their own laptops to test software on their own test problems. Participants will have ample opportunity to discuss their perspectives and criticisms of the methods studied and should take-away key nuggets of understanding from these intensive sessions. Program includes the following workshops: In silico Library Enumeration of Synthetically Feasible Libraries Workshop Instructors: Gyorgy Pirok, Chief Technology Officer, ChemAxon and Daniel Butler, Scientific Executive, Inhibox http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_pirokgoxford Reaction Modelling and Prediction of Reaction Thermodynamics & Kinetics Workshop Instructor: David Gallagher CAChe, BioSciences Group, Fujitsu http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_gallagherdoxford Applications of Filtering and Similarity in Virtual Screening Workshop Instructor: Paul Hawkins, OpenEye Scientific Software http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_hawkinspoxford User Perspective Evaluation of Virtual Screening Methods Workshop Instructor: David Lloyd, Hitachi Professor, Trinity College Dublin http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_lloyddoxford Advances in Virtual Screening and Structure-based Drug Design Workshop Instructors: Jas Gata-Aura and Gerd Rather, Schrodinger http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_gataaurajoxford Data Analysis & Visualisation in Discovery Chemistry & Biology Workshop Instructor: Lennart Eriksson, Umetrics http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_erikssonloxford Predictive Toxicology Workshop Instructors: Mark Cronin, Liverpool John Moores University and Scott McDonald, Lhasa Limited http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_mcdonaldsoxford Discovery Data Mining using Data Pipelining Workshop Instructor: Rob Brown, Scitegic http://www.echeminfo.com/COMTY_brownroxford More details on the workshops can be found on the eCheminfo website at http://echeminfo.colayer.net/COMTY_training Accomodation: We have available a limited number of rooms in college in Oxford and will offer these rooms at no additional cost on a first-come first-served basis to registrants registering during the early registration period. Early Registration period runs through 30 April 2006 and includes 5 nights bed & breakfast accommodation in college. Please book early as places are limited! Registration: The registration fee of 1350 Pounds Sterling includes attendance at the five day workshop and provision of all supporting materials to use and take-home from the workshop. The fee also includes a lunch each day in addition to drinks and snacks for 2 breaks per day. Registration at the workshop also includes a one year annual membership to eCheminfo (value 165 Pounds Sterling) and access to the online library of eCheminfo meeting proceedings (2003-present). Location: The workshops will take place at the Chemistry Research Laboratory, Oxford University, Oxford, UK. This new state of the art facility provides 17,000 sq meters of research space to 400 researchers and at a cost of more than 60M is the largest capital project undertaken by Oxford University to date. A virtual tour of the Laboratory is available at: http://www.chem.ox.ac.uk/oxfordtour/crl/ We will use the Chemistry Information Technology Center at the Chemistry Research Laboratory at Oxford University for all workshop sessions. The Center is equipped with 30 modern computer stations (25 PCs & 5 Macintoshs) and 7 Dual Xeon/Pentium III Windows 2003 file servers with a highspeed ethernet connection to the University FDDI. The IT classroom can be viewed in 3D at: http://www.chem.ox.ac.uk/it/hardware.html For further information and questions on these workshops & training program and registration, please contact eCheminfo Community of Practice Manager: Barry Hardy, eMail: eCheminfo*|*douglasconnect.com, Tel: +41 61 851 0170NOTE THAT E-MAIL ADDRESSES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED!!!
