Online Course: Introduction to Molecular Modeling in Drug Discovery

Online Course: Introduction to Molecular Modeling in Drug Discovery

Monday, May 4, 2020 - Wednesday, June 10, 2020


Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences


Are you interested in enhancing your understanding of Drug Discovery sitting in the comfort of your home as you work remotely?

Schrödinger's online course, Introduction to Molecular Modeling in Drug Discovery, will show how industry-leading computational molecular modeling tools are used to aid in drug discovery and design and how to incorporate these tools into your research project.

Whether you are looking for professional development or expanded skills for your CV, this course will provide practical applications of computational modeling using active learning strategies and multiple types of content. At the end of the course, you will have a chance to apply the concepts you've learned to a VEGFR2 case study in new cancer treatments using cutting-edge technology.

Upon verified completion of the course participants will receive a certificate of completion and a Schrödinger: Molecular Modeling in Drug Discovery Badge

Course Outline:

Module 1: Applying Molecule Modeling to Drug Discovery

Module 2: Creating Computational Molecules with Maestro

Module 3: Viewing Protein-Ligand Interactions

Module 4: Model Protein-Ligand Poses in Hit Identification and Optimization

Module 5: Ligand-Based Virtual Screening in Preparation for SAR

Module 6: Combining Modeling and Experimental Data for SAR Development

Module 7: Drug Discovery Case Study on VEGFR2
