I’m co-organizing the 2012 conference on Therapeutic Applications of Computational Biology and Chemistry (TACBAC), 12-14 March 2012, at the Wellcome Trust Conference Centre, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK
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.
• Clinical implications of individual genomes
• Metabolism and biomarkers
• Computational systems biology
• Discovery of chemical probes
• Modelling xenobiotic metabolism
