The MolMod Lectures 2023-2024

The MolMod Lectures are a series of research-informed on-line and/or hybrid tutorials initiated in 2022 and focused on topics related to Molecular Modeling in Chemistry and Biochemistry. This series of lectures is an extension of the homonymous conference series and MSc programme hosted by the Babeș-Bolyai University (UBB) via its Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (FCIC) since 2007.
The online and hybrid events will take place on the Microsoft Teams platform at UBB

Target audience

The expected target will be the students registered for the MolMod MSc programme at UBB, as well as the general audience typically found at the MolMod conference series.
