INTEGRATE Summer School 2016

 

HTS, Medicinal Chemistry, and Cell Biology in the Discovery of New Drugs Active Against Resistant G-negative Bacteria

 

June 7-10, 2016

 

The 1st INTEGRATE Summer school was held at the facilities of CSC – IT Center for Science Ltd. at the Life Science Center Keilaniemi, Keilaranta 14, Espoo. The school was organized jointly by University of Helsinki, University of Eastern FinlandFraunhofer IME and CSC.

 

The programme included lectures on antimicrobial drug discovery, medicinal chemistry and high-throughput screening as well as practical training in molecular modeling and virtual screening.  Furthermore, a section dedicated to transferable skills and a site visit to High Throughput Biomedicine Unit at FIMM (Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland, Biomedicum, Meilahti Campus) was also included.
