‘MD in Pharma’ one day meeting, 31st March 2023

Molecular dynamics (MD) has established itself as a key tool in the pharmaceutical industry and drug development pipeline. Traditionally, free energy calculations have been used to predict the binding affinity of small molecules in the drug design cycle and remain a core method in the field. Although extremely useful, other approaches have been developed in a variety of industrial settings that go beyond the traditional free energy approach. The “MD in Pharma” meeting aims to highlight some of the key developments of MD applied in the pharmaceutical industry and stimulate discussion about the future direction of new and emerging methodologies.Location: Brunei Lecture Theatre, SOAS, 10 Thornhaugh St, London WC1H 0XG, UK (nearest tube station = Russell Square)

The MGMS Early Career Virtual Workshop Initiative

The MGMS is pleased to announce a call for applications to the MGMS Early Career Virtual Workshop Initiative. Applicants are invited for proposals for on-line workshops or meetings on a topic that is broadly in line with the MGMS’s overall scientific remit, please see website for details of previous meetings for a rough guide. Although we do not envisage in person activities before September 2021 (this deadline might be extended depending on pandemic government guidance), we encourage virtual initiatives in the meantime. Applicants should complete the brief application form and a proposed budget. For a one-day virtual workshop, the budget is anticipated to be up to £300, but proposals outside this range will be considered. Applications should come from student groups or early career (within 5 years of their PhD award) researchers in either academia or industry. The deadline for applications is 31st May 2021 and applications should be emailed to the MGMS secretary (secretary@mgms.org). Applications will be notified in June of the outcome.
