Feb. 14, 2013 - PRLog -- Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI) & Bio-IT World released today the complete agenda for the 13th annual Structure-Based Drug Design conference taking place June 19-21, 2013 at the Revere Hotel in Boston, MA.  

The meeting serves as the “original” conference for the structure-based design community for industry and academic practitioners where delegates will learn about developments in in silico technology, as well as experimental approaches useful for accurately predicting and modeling the structures of proteins in structure-based drug design efforts.  Examples of successful applications of such technology approaches to genome-to-drug lead investigations will also be discussed.

“I look forward to a great event this year," notes CHI Conference Director, Ming Guo. “I am inspired by the ambitious work from researchers in the SBDD field. CHI & Bio-IT World is honored the industry turns to us every year to organize this conference.”

This event boasts an impressive line-up of leading industry experts including a keynote presentation by Tomi Sawyer, Ph.D., CSO, SVP, Discovery & Innovative Technologies, Aileron Therapeutics. Dr. Sawyer’s presentation, entitled “Drugging the Undruggable: Transforming Nature's α-Helix into Breakthrough Medicines,” will take place on Thursday, June 20. As a case study, advancements in stapled peptide technology to transform Nature’s α-helix into breakthrough medicines will be presented.

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) has endorsed its support as a sponsoring society. Due to the overwhelmingly popularity of the Structure-Based Drug Design event, CHI will once again co-locate its Next-Gen Kinase Inhibitors conference to run June 17-19. This gives delegates the unique opportunity to connect with the kinase community and attend the Structure-Based Drug Design event by obtaining an all access, discounted pass.

Early registration discounts will be offered until March 22, 2013. For more details, visit
