International Workshop on “Drug Discovery & Medicinal Chemistry”

Organized by COMSTECH in Collaboration with H. E. J. Research Institute of Chemistry, International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS), University of Karachi

To Be Announced

Short Abstract:

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

  •  Drug Targets:

              Structure of proteins Enzymes,

              Enzymatic activity and inhibition

              Receptors and molecules that modulate their activity

  • Pharmacokinetics:

              Drug transport in the blood Clearance

              Volume of distribution

  • Metabolism:

              Prod rugs

              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

              Existing drugs and natural products as leads

  • Lead Optimization:

              Functional group replacements

Target Audience: This workshop is designed to address the interest of scientists and research scholars from different fields including Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, etc.
