Module Number: 13979
Module Title:Artificial Intelligence for Drug Design
  Künstliche Intelligenz in der Medikamentenentwicklung
Department: Faculty GW - Faculty of Health Sciences Brandenburg
Responsible Staff Member:
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Schliep, Alexander
Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: On special announcement
Credits: 4
Learning Outcome:After successfully completing the module, students have insight into this exciting field of application for Artificial Intelligence (AI). They are able to acquire research literature and to present the topic orally as well as in a written report.
Contents:AI is revolutionizing drug design both for small molecule drugs - the prevalent drug modality - and novel modalities such as oligonucleotide therapeutics. Some of the progress has been achieved by transferring methods from established AI areas such as NLP. For other areas novel methodological developments were instrumental, with very exciting developments on the intersection between molecular dynamics and AI. 

The focus of the seminar will be on state-of-the-art methods and applications of AI in drug design for small molecule drugs and oligonucleotide therapeutics.
Recommended Prerequisites:Working knowledge of probability/statistics and modern machine learning methods.
Mandatory Prerequisites:None
