  Therapeutic Applications of Computational Biology and Chemistry (TACBAC) 2012

12-14 March 2012

Wellcome Trust Conference Centre, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK

Registration now closed  

Summary 

This conference will bring together leading researchers investigating computational chemistry and biology techniques as applied to advancing our ability to predict, diagnose and modulate human disease. This broad and multidisciplinary meeting will explore the major challenges in drug discovery and development where innovation in computational approaches and tools can really make a significant and tangible contribution towards novel treatments.  You should attend this conference if you are a researcher interested in drug discovery, or developing or using computational approaches to the development of therapeutics, or if you are a key decision maker in a pharmaceutical or biotechnology company.

Each of the sessions, which progress from identifying disease mechanisms to implementing new therapeutic and diagnostic approaches in the clinic, will bring together experts in both the biomedical and the computational aspects of the topic under discussion. Sessions chairs will encourage discussion and contribution from the attendees.

 Session topics
 Clinical implications of individual genomes
 Metabolism and biomarkers
 Computational systems biology
 Discovery of chemical probes
 Modelling xenobiotic metabolism
