The programme of Passion for Knowledge 2016 also includes an international summer school focused on a topic of interest for the local scientific community, and specially addressed to PhD students and young postdoctoral researchers. The school is as well part of the extensive program of Summer Courses of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).
Dynapeutics, as the school is called, aims to introduce, describe and discuss the theory and applications of different computational methods for studying and simulating biomolecules of biological environments, relevant for the design and optimisation of molecular drugs, as well as for our understanding of biological processes in general at a molecular level.
The school consists of two different sessions: in the morning, theoretical lessons held at the Material Physics Center (CFM, a joint CSIC-UPV/EHU center) and, early in the afternoon, practical lessons with computers in the Ignacio Maria Barriola building at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).
The school is chaired by Xabier LÓPEZ, lecturer at the UPV/EHU and, it will also have the participation of the Nobel Laureate Martin KARPLUS, one of the plenary speakers of P4K 2016.
