Identification & Evaluation of Enzyme Inhibitors in Drug Discovery - Walter Ward : (7.5 hrs)


This workshop is open to all PhD students and Postdocs and will cover fundamental principles of identification and evaluation of enzyme inhibitors, and specific applications in drug discovery. Around half of current medicines function through inhibition of enzymes. It is therefore paramount to gain deep understanding of the principles and methods that underpin the identification and evaluation of enzyme inhibitors. The course will cover topics ranging from basic enzyme kinetics, inhibition mechanisms and binding thermodynamics, all the way to principles and applications of modern biophysical techniques, which are nowadays at the heart of modern drug discovery projects.
