ELIXIR-IIB, in collaboration with the University of Padova and RGS-Italy, is pleased to inform you that the applications for the upcoming training course on "Computational approaches to the study of protein interactions and rational drug design" are now open.

IMPORTANT DATES for this Course:
- Deadline for applications: 28th March 2017
- Course date: 10-13 April 2017

Venue: Campus di Biologia e Biomedicina "Fiore di Botta", University of Padova, Via del Pescarotto, 8, Padova, IT

Prof. Alexandre Bonvin - Faculty of Science, Utrecht University, the Netherlands
Dr. Norman Davey - University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland)
Dr. Stefano Forli - Dept. Molecular Biology, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, USA
Prof. Stefano Moro - Dept. of Pharmaceutical and Pharmacological Sciences, University of Padova, Padova, Italy

A maximum of 30 candidates will be accepted in the course. Selection will start on March 10th, 2017 and those with an adequate profile will be accepted immediately, especially if they come from other cities and/or countries (to allow them to find reasonably cheap flight tickets).

Course description:
This workshop is aimed at students in master degree courses, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who are working or planning to work in the field of protein interactions from a molecular and structural point of view. In this workshop, participants will familiarise with docking approaches to the study of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) and protein-small molecule interactions. Irreversible binders design using molecular docking and computational methods to rational drug design will be also described, as well as the functional role of the intrinsically disordered proteins.

Should you have any question, do not hesitate to contact the ELIXIR-IIB training coordinator, Dr Allegra Via, at allegra.via@cnr.it or elixir.ita.training@gmail.com.
