We are pleased to announce the first edition of the School on Molecular Modeling for Life Sciences which will be held from 6th to 10th June 2016 in Pula, Sardinia, Italy.

The registration is now open and is free of charge.

The deadline for registration is May 15th 2016.

The School is limited to a maximum of 40 participants.

Applicants should submit a short CV and a motivation letter through the Application form available at the website of the School.

The School aims at facilitating scientist from different disciplines to get familiar with some of the key computational methods in molecular biology, and is dedicated to doctoral, post-doctoral, and master degree students.

The main goals are:

  • To give an updated overview of some of the following broadly widespread computational techniques: structure-based homology modeling, drug-binding sites detection and molecular docking, and classic molecular dynamics;
  • To make the attendants being able to use at the basic level one of the most common packages developed within each of the aforementioned methodologies;
  • To expose participants to timely scientific problems in biological/medical research.

The School will consist of Lectures and Tutorials held by international leaders in their disciplines, and it is addressed to physicists, chemists, computational biologists, and anyone interested in learning how to use a broad set of computational methods that are key to life sciences.

The School is funded by Regione Autonoma della Sardegna through the call “SCIENTIFIC SCHOOL 2015” promoted by Sardegna Ricerche.
