FRAGNET is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) set up to train a new generation of researchers in all aspects of Fragment-Based Ligand Design (FBLD), thereby enabling them to use the different methods and technologies to develop the next generation of medicines. This Workshop will take place on the 24th of January and will focus on the interplay between computational and experimental approaches, with expert speakers from both sides. We have allocated 15-20 minutes for discussion after each talk, which will give ample opportunities to interact with the experts and learn current trends and future directions.

The program is the following:
