Protein-Protein Interactions Symposium

Protein-Protein Interactions: A Promising Avenue for Drug Discovery

CMIDD's Protein-Protein Interactions: A Promising Avenue for Drug Discovery Symposium will feature two industry speakers who will highlight the distinctive features of the Protein-Protein Interactions interface as the potential druggable site using in-silico tools and experimental techniques. Additionally, they will use real examples to show how to identify promising therapeutic targets and to discover small molecules that block the protein-protein interactions.
