VIRTUAL COURSE in STRUCTURE-BASED DRUG DESIGN
from the Virtual School of Molecular Sciences
The VSMS at the University of Nottingham, UK, is offering a postgraduate
Certificate/Diploma course in Structure-Based Drug Design, aimed at
professional scientists in industry and academia. The course is VIRTUAL,
being run over the WWW, and has been created with the close cooperation
and sponsorship of 4 companies: Glaxo Wellcome, Oxford Molecular Group,
Pfizer and Smith Kline Beecham.
The course is modular and covers the principles of how ligands interact
with macromolecular targets, and the theory and practice of molecular
modelling. It also covers the use of biomolecular resources on the WWW.
The course is available to anyone with a relevant degree in a scientific
subject and is self-paced, taking between 1 and 2 years. In past virtual
courses we have been able to grow a virtual learning community and this
is one of the attractions of this approach. We are now taking
registrations this autumn/fall and details can be found under the course
home page at:
or e-mail me at:

We also welcome enquiries from individuals or groups who wish to study
part of the course, and the first module offered in this way will be
'Molecular Modelling' lasting a virtual month.
