EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic
With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.
Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
Small molecules play an important role in biological research and drug discovery. Demonstrating target engagement by a small molecule is essential to understand its mechanism of action. This course will give a solid practical and theoretical grounding in evaluating how a small molecule interacts with its biological target in cells or in vitro and its role in drug discovery.
This course is aimed at pre and post doctoral and established researchers developing/using small molecules in drug discovery or for the elucidation of biological questions.
- Cellular Thermal Shift Assay (CETSA)
- Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer (BRET)
- PROTAC: targeted protein degradation
- Computational methods for target identification
