Biotechnology Society of Nepal(BSN) in collaboration with BioDiscovery Group Solutions for Future, India  is going to organize 3 day workshop on Drug Discovery & Designing from 26-28 July 2013 in Kathmandu, Nepal. BioDiscovery-Solutions for  is carrying out several programs in the form of training, novel research projects, online training programs, workshops & seminars to make learn this technology to students/ researchers/ professionals from all over the world. We conduct hands on training workshops and seminars at Universities/ Colleges/ Conferences all over the world to make learn the newest technology.


This workshop is unique as the participants work on the software and perform what they learn, i.e. practical application of the technology. The course is suitable for students, scientists, technicians, engineers and academicians.


  1. 40 US $ for valid BSN Members.
  2. 40 US $ for Students coming in Group of 10.
  3. 45 US $ for Students coming in Group of 5.
  4. 50 US $ for Students coming alone as individual.
  5. 70 US $ for Faculties/Teachers/Company Employees/ Professionals


After this date the fee increases to 5 US $ for above mentioned categories.

Onsite registration: 100 US $ for all

The topics which will be covered in 3 day workshop include:

·         Introduction of Drug Designing
