IIT Kanpur short-term course on Computational Drug Design

The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur is conducting a training cum workshop on Machine Learning and High-Performance Computing in Computational Drug Design: Methods & Applications for research fellows, students, faculties and professionals. This article has information on the program, registration fee and other relevant details.

About the program

This is a 5-day training-cum-workshop on Machine Learning and High-Performance Computing in Computational Drug Design: Methods & Applications where participants will get an overview of the various details of drug design that includes cloud computing and the quickest computational methods using codes. Case studies may be designed by the candidates themselves or by the instructors/ lecturers. The aim of this workshop is to provide the necessary knowledge to the participants that can be applied to their research.

The license to the software used for drug design will be given to the participants so that they can continue practicing and engage in the case studies after the workshop. Cloud access to the participants will also be given beyond the scheduled workshop.


Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur in association with Insilico Private Limited is organizing the workshop.

Who can join

Ph.D. Scholars, Post Doctoral Researchers, Master's Degree Students, Research Associates, Faculties, and participants from industry in India can join this training-cum-workshop. International participants can also join this program.
