About this event

We are excited to be hosting Michael V. LeVine, Senior Drug Discovery Scientist, and Aashima Jhingon, Strategic Growth Associate, from D. E. Shaw Research (DESRES) in an in-person event on Wednesday, 26th of April at 6 pm. The event is held at ETH Zentrum, Room HG E3.

About DESRES and the talk: D. E. Shaw Research is a New York-based drug discovery and computational biochemistry research company developing and using advanced computational technologies to understand the behavior of biologically and pharmaceutically significant molecules at an atomic level of detail, and to design precisely targeted, highly selective drugs for the treatment of various diseases. Among their core technologies is a special-purpose supercomputer called ANTON® designed to perform molecular dynamics simulations over 100 times faster than the fastest general-purpose supercomputers. DESRES develops and refines advanced biomolecular modeling methods, software, and machine learning techniques to pursue both internal and collaborative drug discovery programs. Teams at DESRES bring together scientists from a great variety of backgrounds all working collaboratively within a tightly coupled interdisciplinary environment. These include computational chemists, biologists and drug discovery scientists, computer scientists, machine learning engineers, applied mathematicians, and computer engineers!

Whether you’re familiar with their group, or this is the first time you’re hearing of D. E. Shaw Research, join us to learn more about their groundbreaking research, the potential of drug discovery as well as their complex engineering projects!

Moreover, our guest speakers will also present career opportunities and open positions in their group. D. E. Shaw Research welcomes applications from undergraduate and graduate students from a range of scientific and technical disciplines, including chemistry, biology, chemical or biomolecular engineering, machine learning and other areas of computer science, electrical and computer engineering, applied mathematics, and physics.

Food and drinks will be served at the event! 🌮🍸
