Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD) Certification Course
CADD Online Certification Program
Computer-Aided drug design(CADD) is an amazing approach that applies computational methods to discover, develop, and analyze drugs and similar biologically active molecules. Over the past few years, CADD has been involved in some of the most significant contributions in the discovery of new drugs, active molecules, etc. One cannot ignore the role of Computer-aided drug design in the vaccine development for the COVID 19 virus.
