Anna University, along with the Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) is organizing a short term course on anti parasite drug delivery, an insight into human infectious diseases.
The course would expose participants to the fundamental diversity of drug discovery targets related to tRNA synthetases (AARS) - prokaryotic versus eukaryotic and build confidence and capability amongst the participants in the application of AARS structure and function to drug discovery. It would also provide exposure to practical problems through case studies and projects on the development of new AARS inhibitors as anti-infectives and immunomodulators.
Enhancing the capability of the participants to consider the multifunctional biological activities of synthetases for complementary drug discovery strategies. There will also be a practical computer session on database mining of new AARS targetsto treat human parasitic diseases. Course participants will learn these topics through lectures practical sessions and tutorials. Also assignments will be shared to stimulate research motivation of participants.
