About the Drug Design & Development Seminar (DDDS)

The Drug Design & Development Seminar (DDDS) was founded in 1999 as an active working group of the German Society for Parasitology, by Prof. Dr. Peter Köhler (Univ. of Zürich, CH), Prof. Dr. Rolf Walter (BNI, Hamburg, DE), and Prof. Dr. Heiner Schirmer (Univ. of Heidelberg, DE). Since 2004 Prof. Dr. Paul M. Selzer (Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, Ingelheim, DE) is the coordinator of the DDDS transferring the meeting into an international well recognized scientific forum. Exchange of scientific information about anti-parasitic chemotherapy between universities, industry, and other research organizations continues to be important to accelerate anti-parasitic drug development. The DDDS is open to all scientists and professionals interested in the field of anti-parasitic research. The DDDS aims at connecting human and veterinary health by complementary approaches in medical and veterinary parasitology and medicinal chemistry to aim and stimulate One-Health approaches to combat parasitic diseases. The main topics include but are not limited to:
– Target identification, characterization, and validation
– Identification of compounds
– Synthesis and optimization of lead compounds towards marketable drugs
– Testing active compounds in animal models

Registration & fees:

The registration fee of 100 € for students (incl. PhD students), 170 € for postdocs, and 250 € for all others includes the abstract booklet, refreshments & lunches during the whole meeting, a conference dinner, and a welcome snack as well as drinks during the welcome reception on Tuesday evening (from 5:00 p.m. on), April 5th, 2022.
