|3rd EFMC Short Course on Medicinal Chemistry|
|Principles and Applications of in vitro Pharmacology in Drug Discovery for Medicinal Chemists|
|Castle “Oud Poelgeest”, Oegstgeest, The Netherlands - April 10-13, 2011|
In the initial phases of drug discovery where compound potency and selectivity are major considerations, data derived by biologists is of prime importance to the chemists.
This short course will be a mixture of talks, tutorials and case histories involving GPCRs (G protein coupled receptors), enzymes and ion channels.
The course will discuss:
• The techniques and data that biologists use to assess potency and selectivity of agonists, antagonists and enzyme inhibitors.
