CHI and Bio-IT World Present the Twelfth Annual
Structure-Based Drug Design: 
Predicting Biological and Kinetic Profiles from Structure

June 6-8, 2012
Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston, Cambridge, MA

About the event:

Structure-based drug design took nearly two decades of multiple, 
parallel technological improvements to arrive at its current 
mainstream position in medicinal chemistry. Developments in 
computer graphics, high-power radiation sources, computational 
processing power, refinement protocols, virtual screening and 
crystallography were all necessary to create the environment 
for rapid, iterative structure-based drug discovery. Given 
the crisis facing the pharmaceutical industry in the 
translation of early stage drug discovery results, a 
different set of tools, concerned with algorithms and 
methods for developing best in class drugs that engage 
biological targets with kinetically optimized potency 
and selectivity will need to be refined. In this 
conference, we bring to focus recent advancements in 
this field from an experienced faculty.

Keynote Address:
Binding Kinetics in Drug Discovery
David Swinney, Ph.D., CEO, Institute for Rare and 
Neglected Diseases Drug Discovery (iRND3)

Themed Sessions:
- Structure to Function
- Free Energy Calculation and Molecular Dynamics Simulation
- Fragment-Based Design
- Druggability and Kinetics-Based Drug Design
- Trends and Advances
