Coffee and Viz: Modeling the Chemical Space
- This event has passed.
There are as many potential drug-like chemicals as stars in the whole universe. Synthesizing and testing all those compounds experimentally is impossible. Denis Fourches, assistant professor of chemistry in the College of Sciences, will discuss the rise of cheminformatics and artificial intelligence to model, visualize and virtually screen those chemicals for various applications in drug discovery, chemical risk assessment and green chemistry.
The talk is free and open to the public. Coffee and light refreshments from locally owned Anisette Sweet Shop will be available in an adjacent space beginning at 9:15 a.m. To increase the sustainability of this program, please consider bringing your own reusable coffee mug.
