I am Senior Applications Scientist for Schrodinger for the last 10 years and am based in the UK. I have supported drug-discovery projects for European Biotechs and Pharma in this time, and am now responsible for collating and running Schrodinger workshops all over the UK, Europe, India and coming this year the USA. My workshops cover varied and latest aspects of Drug Discovery in-line with Schrodinger advancements in this field from Kinases and GPCRs to popular techniques of Drug Discovery.
