Scientific Lecture: Dr. Vaclav Veverka

Scientific Lecture: Dr. Vaclav Veverka – July 9 @ 10am (187A)

Title: Biomolecular NMR: an essential tool for drug discovery

 Vaclav Veverka
IOCB Gilead Sciences Research Centre in Prague
Department of Cell Biology, Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic

 Several key stages in the knowledge-based drug discovery process require detailed information about targeted systems at the molecular level. This includes validation of selected proteins or protein-protein interactions and assessment of their druggability, identification of suitable small molecules with the desired inhibitory activity and detailed structural characterization of the sites of intervention essential for the development of initial hits to more active lead molecules. NMR spectroscopy was for a long time overshadowed by X-ray crystallography in drug discovery but with a recent shift in target selection towards more challenging protein-protein interactions it bounced back on stage. The particular strengths of the technique will be introduced from the biologists’ perspective and the benefits for drug discovery illustrated in the context of an epigenetic target.

Trainee Seminar: Moderated by Dr. Thomas "Trey" Westbrook, Ph.D., Presented by Michael Corsello, Ph.D. "Collaboration and Feedback: Foundations for an Exceptional Scientific Culture"

In addition to our mission at THINC@BCM to innovatively discover early therapeutics, we look to inculcate a thriving scientific culture in our center here at Baylor College of Medicine. We believe that scientific innovation can be expressed most impactfully when individuals are supported to maximize their potential. At each THINC Trainee Seminar, topics will be presented that help our members and affiliates grow as both scientists and as individuals.

THINC SYMPOSIUM 2018: Therapeutics of Gene Regulation

Our goal at THINC@BCM is to push forward innovative ideas in drugging gene control through training, education, and translational science.  As part of this commitment, we are excited to organize the first annual THINC@BCM Symposium entitled "Therapeutics of Gene Regulation" to further the understanding of diseases of RNA and chromatin biology; we are pleased to welcome speakers who are integral to gene regulation in both academia and industry.  We look forward to seeing you there!

EARLY THERAPEUTICS ROUND TABLE: Moderated by Dr. Charles Y. Lin, Ph.D., Presented by Kristen Karlin, Ph.D. "RNA Splicing: A new frontier in cancer therapeutics"

Room N311

**PLEASE NOTE UPDATED TIME AND ROOM NUMBER**

The Early Therapeutics Round Table was developed by THINC as a creative forum for Trainees to focus on therapeutics and how to design therapeutic driven projects.  At each Round Table, designated trainees will present a few slides illustrating a therapeutic idea emanating from their work instead of giving a pre-planned talk.  A moderator will facilitate discussion around how to build a research program to test the core therapeutic hypothesis.  This is a unique event designed for trainees to brainstorm in therapeutics space.

CANCELLED - EARLY THERAPEUTICS ROUND TABLE FOR TRAINEES

**RESCHEDULE DATE TBA**

 

The Early Therapeutics Round Table was developed by THINC as a creative forum for Trainees to focus on therapeutics and how to design therapeutic driven projects.  At each Round Table, a designated presenter will show a few slides to illustrate a therapeutic idea emanating from their work (instead of giving a pre-planned talk).  A moderator will facilitate discussion around how to build a research program to test the core therapeutic hypothesis.  This is a unique event designed for trainees to brainstorm in therapeutics space.
