2nd Nordic POP Workshop on Pharmaceutical Modelling and Simulation
2nd Nordic POP Workshop on Pharmaceutical Modelling and Simulation is again co-organized with the Swedish Drug Delivery Center (SweDeliver).
Workshop on Molecular Dynamics (MD) Simulations at the Department of Pharmacy will take place from November 30th to December 1st, 2023. Note that, our workshop is scheduled to begin the day after the "New Horizons in Drug Delivery and Formulation" conference, which will be held in Uppsala on November 27-29, 2023.
We are glad to announce that we can present invited speakers Jens Carlsson (Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University), Marie Skepö (Department of Chemistry, Lund University), Vasanthanathan Poongavanam (Department of Chemistry, Uppsala University), Xuezhi Zhuo (Department of Pharmacy, University of Copenhagen).
8.30 - 11.45: Welcome, followed by invited talks on the use of molecular modeling and simulation in different stages of drug discovery, development and delivery processes. Invited Speakers:
Jens Carlsson (Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University)
Marie Skepö (Department of Chemistry, Lund University)
Vasanthanathan Poongavanam (Department of Chemistry, Uppsala University)
Xuezhi Zhuo (Department of Pharmacy, University of Copenhagen)
13.00 - 16.30: Workshop on Nanoparticle – bilayer interactions
Brief Description: Here we use computer simulations to explore the aggregation of nanoparticles, specifically fullerenes, their translocation through a model lipid membrane, and the effect of nanoparticle concentration on membrane properties. We will also analyze the free energy associated with nanoparticle transport processes.
8.30 – 12.00: Workshop on Therapeutic peptide aggregation
Brief Description: Aggregation of peptides can hinder its therapeutic efficacy and slight changes in amino acid sequence can impact aggregation tendency. We will thoroughly explore how modeling and simulation can be used to study the aggregation of therapeutic peptides. Using a range of analysis methods, different ways to analyze molecular dynamics trajectories will be illustrated.
