10th EFMC Short Course on Medicinal Chemistry: Small-Molecule Modulation of Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs) Back
Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs) lie at the heart of almost every physiological process and every disease. With a recently estimated number of 300,000 in humans, the possibilities for therapeutic intervention are significantly larger compared to ‘classical’ drug targets. While this potential is up to now largely untapped, some successful examples have shown that PPIs can be modulated by drug-like small molecules, natural products and peptides.
Specific features of PPIs as drug targets - in comparison to conventionally addressing e.g. enzymes - will be discussed, followed by a broad overview of the field, techniques to discover modulators of PPIs, and - in more detail - a number of case studies on successful PPI intervention will be presented. Speakers include a selection of top-scientists active in the field of PPI, both from industry and academia.
