About Courses

Computer Aided Drug Design (CAAD) is the application of computer technology to the process of drug discovery. It can be used to help identify potential drug molecules, simulate their effects on biological systems, and design experiments to test them. CAAD tools can also be used to optimize drug properties, such as potency, toxicity, and solubility.

It includes:

  • Three dimensional (structure based) drug design
  • Ligand based drug design
  • In silico screening 
  • Molecular dynamics simulations

This course will provide you with a comprehensive introduction to CAAD, covering all the major topics and methods in the field. You will learn how to use CAAD tools to identify potential drug molecules, optimize their properties, and design experiments to test them. The course will also include a hands-on component (Software name), where you will use CAAD tools to solve real-world problems.

Courses Outcomes

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basics of CAAD
  • Use CAAD tools to identify potential drug molecules
  • Optimize the properties of drug molecules
  • Design experiments to test drug molecules

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for students with a bachelor’s or master’s degree in pharmaceutical sciences, biochemistry, biotech, chemistry, or a closely related field who are interested in drug development research.
