A Winter School on the theme “Computer Aided Drug Design: Hands-On Workshop” is being organised from 28th January to 9th February 2013 at University Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS), Panjab University for the Pharmaceutical professionals drawn across the country under the initiative of UGC Networking programme and co-ordinatorship of Professor Manoj Kumar. Professor K. K. Bhutani, Director NIPER, Mohali will be the Chief Guest on the occasion and will deliver
the Key Note Lecture on ‘Predictivity for Druggable Properties in Drug Discovery and Development Ventures’. The school will commence on Monday, 28th January at 9:30 am in ICSSR Seminar Hall of Panjab University Campus. UIPS is the first and the only Pharmacy Institute in the country selected by MHRD for creating UGC Networking Resource Centre to promote research in the field of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Computer Aided Drug Design became an invaluable tool for medicinal chemistry and drug discovery applications since it often dramatically reduces the overall cost of drug discovery and accelerates the design of newer leads for the life threatening diseases like cancer, AIDs, tuberculosis, diabetes etc.

The aim of the course is to make the participants familiar with a variety of computational methods used in the area of rational drug discovery and intensive hands on training would be imparted during the course using various available software”, said the Coordinator Prof. Manoj Kumar.
