Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment. BioPharma Institute ReviewsThis course gives an introduction to the use of computers for protein-based and small molecule drug design. It covers protein and antibody reengineering, peptide design, and structure based analysis of small molecule drugs. Computer modeling of drug-receptor interactions, and its use for structure optimization is also described.
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire program and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment with >80% passing grade within a 90 day period of time (180 days for Professional Certification Programs). Certificate is accessible in PDF format immediately after satisfying requirements.
