HOW (BIO)CHEMISTS CAN ACCELERATE DRUG DISCOVERY WITH JUST A FEW CLICKS
PRESENTED BY :
JOSH POTTEL PH.D.,
PRESIDENT OF MOLECULAR FORECASTER
Molecular Forecaster will hold a Lunch & Learn session on Wednesday, Feb. 13th, 2019 at 12:00 pm in the Philippe Walker Auditorium.
Josh Pottel will present Molecular Forecaster, a Canadian, Montreal-based scientific software company. We are a team of chemists leveraging our knowledge of chemical principles to develop our own high accuracy programs with unique, customizable features. Our user-focused platforms, Forecaster and Virtual Chemist, are used for drug discovery, metabolism prediction, combinatorial chemistry, and asymmetric catalyst design.
Josh Pottel, Ph.D., President of Molecular Forecaster
Josh completed his B.Sc. in chemistry at McGill University in 2011 along with a minor in computer science. Under the supervision of Prof. Nicolas Moitessier, he obtained his Ph.D. from McGill, focusing his research on software development in chemo- and bioinformatics. He conducted postdoctoral research as an NRSA and CERSI fellow at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) with Prof. Brian Shoichet applying computational techniques to a variety of problems.
As a luncheon will be provided by Molecular Forecaster, kindly RSVP before Friday, Feb. 8th to Shirley Robinet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
