Compact Mass Spectrometry – The Users’ Perspective
Leveraging 20 years of mass spectrometry and chemistry expertise to develop a mass spectrometer just for medicinal chemists. The high performance single quadrupole offers versatile and flexibility to a range of application areas including reaction monitoring, compound identification, purification, natural products, food safety, and proteins/peptides analysis. When combined with its unique inlet techniques, the Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP) or Plate Express, TLC plate reader, the expression CMS, is an easy-to-use detector for rapid compound characterisation. During this workshop, attendees will hear from users who have placed the expression CMS in their chemistry workflows for improved productivity and decision-making.

Structure-Based Drug Design and Ligand Modification: Molecular Surfaces and Maps / Ligand Interactions / Conformational Searching / Ligand Optimization / Ligand Selectivity / Protein Alignments and Superposition
The course covers applications for interactive structure based design. Examples include active site visualization, protein-ligand contact analysis and ligand modification/optimization in the receptor pocket. Conformational searching and analysis of the ligand to assess ligand flexibility will be discussed. A protocol for aligning and superposing protein complexes in the context of protein selectivity will be studied.
