Abstract

The Drug Design Workshop initiative was put in place in 2015 and consists of a collection of educational tools especially developed to introduce computer-aided drug design to the general public and students of various levels. These presentations, hands-on sessions, physical material and on-line educational tools (http://www.drug-design-workshop.ch) have been used in a variety of settings including classrooms, universities, teacher training sessions and science fairs. The main goal is to inform an audience as broad as possible regarding the processes and challenges for the design, discovery and development of drugs. The present article describes what is presently available and the future direction for new activities currently under development.
