We are happy to present this year's edition of our online autumn training school 2021. 

Participation fee: free of charge

Registration deadline: November 8th 2021

This autumn school receives funding from the European Union´s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 823893 (EU-OPENSCREEN-DRIVE).

Topics

This first edition of our training school will present various aspects of chemical biology

Starting with a general introduction to the field, we will continue by exploring more specific subjects such as

  • hit selection,
  • cheminformatics,
  • medicinal chemistry,
  • principles of open data and open source tools,
  • assay development and optimisation,
  • data analysis.

New services of EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC such as fragment screening will also be presented. Additionally, our speakers will introduce you to the EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC European Chemical Biology Database (ECBD), compound libraries and specific instruments which are used during compound management and screening campaigns.
