PH.D., DIRECTOR OF SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT, PRINCIPAL SCIENTIST
CHEMICAL COMPUTING GROUP
Chemical Computing Groupe will hold a Lunch & Learn session on Tuesday, Feb. 19th, 2019 at 12:00 pm in the Philippe Walker Auditorium.
Chris Williams will present the MOE Software Platform. Molecular Operating Environment (MOE) is a drug discovery software platform that integrates visualization, modelling and simulations, as well as methodology development, in one package. MOE scientific applications are used by biologists, medicinal chemists and computational chemists in pharmaceutical, biotechnology and academic research.
Chris Williams, Ph.D., Director of Scientific Support, Principal Scientist
Chemical Computing Group
Originally trained as a chemical engineer, Chris Williams worked in industrial explosives manufacturing, treatment of mining wastes and paint formulation before embarking on his graduate studies at McGill University. Under Dr. Tony Whitehead, Chris received his Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry in 1996, after which he worked at various colleges before starting full-time as an application scientist at Chemical Computing Group in 1998. Chris Williams became a Principal Scientist at Chemical Computing Group in 2002. His research interests include structure-based drug design, combining pattern classifiers for virtual screening and the implication of numerical instability in computational chemistry calculations. He is currently the Director of Scientific Support at CCG.
As a luncheon will be provided by Chemical Computing Group, kindly RSVP before Wednesday, Feb. 13th to Terry Grassetti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
