WCADD-2 Workshop


Nowadays, almost all new drugs are discovered by rational drug design approaches. Inter- disciplinary research combined with computational techniques has the potential to lead the researchers to successful discovery of new drugs.

“Turkish Computer Aided Drug Design and Development Society” cordially invites you to join the “2nd Workshop on Computer Aided Drug Design & Development: Molecular Modeling (WCADD-2)”, 26-29 June, Ankara, Turkey. The first  “Workshop on Computer-Aided Drug Design and Development (WCADD-1)”  was organized at 02-05 February 2007, Istanbul, Turkey which attracted many scientists from the University and Industrial settings. The main topic of WCADD-1 is Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships (QSAR). This time Molecular Modeling in Computer Aided Drug Design will be the major topic of the workshop.

The content of this workshop is intended to be useful for all researchers hoping to conduct computer-aided drug design work focusing on molecular modeling”. The approach will be hands-on using a computer lab and a set of workshop sessions led by distinguished scientists using advanced drug discovery software.

Our goal is to foster an open and friendly workshop atmosphere, where new ideas grow and multidisciplinary collaborations are initiated.­­ The workshop format will allow a great deal of dialogue between participants and lecturers as well.­

Computer-Aided Drug Design and Development Society in Turkey is pleased to have you as part of the event and we invite you to join us in Ankara, the capital of Turkey.

We look forward to welcoming you in Ankara,
