LECTURE: Complex Systems Approach for Innovation in AEDs Discovery.
The term drug design describes the search of novel compounds with biological activity, on a systematic basis. In its most common form, it involves modification of a known active scaffold or linking known active scaffolds, although de novo drug design (i.e., from scratch) is also possible.
In his presentation, Alan Talevi will discuss the recent applications of modern drug discovery technologies in the field of epilepsy, including high-throughput screening, in silico screening and computer-aided drug design. The suitability and perspectives of each approach will be discussed, depending on the context, along with the technology and translational gaps influencing them.
