Title “MS-based metabolomics applications in pharmacy”

Understanding of complex biological systems requires the measurement, analysis and integration of multiple compound classes of the living cell, usually determined by transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomics measurements. Metabolomics studies aim for the identification and quantification of the complement of all small molecules and lipids within a biological system.
In recent years, metabolomics has emerged as cornerstones in the field of systems biology. This workshop will provide the participants with: Introduction to ‘omics’ technologies Experimental design and sample preparation in metabolomics studies MS-based metabolomics analysis Multivariate data analysis

To be eligible for this workshop you need to:
Have some basic experience in practical/theoretical gas/liquid chromatography (GC/LC) and mass spectrometry (MS).
Have a master’s degree or similar.

Title: “Genetic Toxicology: A Regulatory Requirement in the Discovery and Development of New Pharmaceuticals”

Genetic toxicology data is used as an alternate for long-term carcinogenicity data during early drug development. It represents an important part of preclinical safety assessment of new drugs and is required prior to Phase I/II clinical trials. It is designed to identify potentially hazardous drug candidates by detecting their genetic damage such as gene mutations and chromosomal aberration, which may be reflected in tumorigenic or heritable mutation potential of the drug. Learning Outcomes:
Participants in this workshop will gain knowledge about the following:
- Introduction to genetic toxicology and its impact on drug discovery and development
- Differences between genotoxicity, mutagenicity and cytotoxicity
- Principle, procedures and data analysis of different techniques used in genetic toxicology during the process of drug development
- Single cell gel electrophoresis assay
- Methods for detection of chromosomal aberrations
- Micronucleus test

To be eligible for this workshop you need to:
Pharmacy graduates interested in genetics and toxicology.

Title: “Concomitant Application of Quality by Design and Artificial Intelligence in Drug Delivery”

Quality by Design (QbD) is an industry initiative supported by regulators. However, it is also a systematic method of process development which delivers consistency, robustness and increased process knowledge. QbD is certainly becoming a scientific, risk based proactive approach to pharmaceutical product development. Artificial intelligence can be potentially used to create the multidimensional interactions of input variables and to closely bind these variables to a design space.
This workshop will provide the participants with:
- Comprehensive understanding of QbD including current uses and promised use
- The overall logic and flow of the QbD development process, which includes the use and application of the various tools
- Development and use of Quality Target Product Profiles (QTPPs)
- Definition and verification of Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs), Critical Material Attributes (CMAs) and Critical Process Parameters (CPPs)
- Facets of statistical design of experiments (DOEs), using different response surface methodologies and artificial intelligence technique.
- Design Space and its application in process control, lifecycle management, understanding design space limits.
- Development and optimization of process control strategies.
- Direct application of the steps of QbD and artificial intelligence in the drug formulation.

To be eligible for this workshop you need to:
Have some basic knowledge on statistical analysis

Title: “Advanced Technologies for stem cell research”

During this workshop, we will discuss different technologies utilized in the stem cell research to analyse the cell differentiation and explore the mechanisms controlling cell differentiation and self-renewability.

To be eligible for this workshop you need to:

Title: “Introduction to Structure-Based Drug Design”

This workshop is powered by Schrödinger’s industry-leading computational platform to accelerate drug discovery and materials design is deployed by leading biopharmaceutical and industrial companies, academic institutions and government laboratories worldwide. Schrödinger is also applying its computational platform to a diverse and extensive pipeline of drug discovery programs in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies and has co-founded leading biotech companies.
In addition, Schrödinger is using its platform to advance a pipeline of internal, wholly-owned drug discovery programs. It will include 1-hour live demo and the distribution of evaluation licenses for an opportunity to try out the Schrödinger's drug discovery suite “Maestro”.

To be eligible for this workshop you need to:
Pharmacy Postgraduates with interest in medicinal chemistry

Title:“Gene expression (RNA Seq) analysis using R programming language”

The workshop will briefly discuss and provide hands-on practice with RNA sequencing and analysis using computational biology and bioinformatics. An overview will be given on the fundamentals of OMICs based sciences, in particular, transcriptome. The main steps of RNA-sequencing and analysis workflow will be highlighted, including; cDNA library preparation, a quality check of fastq files, genome alignment, and identification of differentially expressed genes.
Learning outcomes:
- By the end of this workshop, the participants will be able to:
- Understand fundamentals of molecular biology and transcriptomes.
- Outline the required steps of RNA-seq analysis workflow.
- Recognize and distinguish between different parts of Rstudio.
- Run a script and interpret results of data analysis on Rstudio.
- Annotate the expressed genes on web-based tools (Gprofiler or GSEA).

To be eligible for this workshop you need to:
Have some basic knowledge of OMICs-based science
Know the fundamentals of R programming language
