Women at the Interface of Computational Chemistry and Drug Discovery

Thursday, March 28, 2019 at 2-3:30pm ET 
Session 3 of the 2019 Drug Design and Delivery Symposium

According to a recent report by UNESCO Institute for Statistics, less than thirty percent of researchers in STEM are females. However, in the field of computational chemistry, more and more women are active decision makers, contributors, and attendees at professional meetings.

Join a panel of successful female computational chemists featuring JCIM Associate Editor Zoe Cournia of the Biomedical Research Foundation Academy of Athens, computational chemistry pioneer Yvonne C. Martin previously of Abbott Laboratories, Principal Scientist Shana Posy of Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Principal Scientist Kate Holloway of Gfree Bio as they share their diverse experiences and backgrounds. During this special 1.5-hour free interactive broadcast, discover essential career advice for those interested in computational chemistry and drug discovery, as well as ask your questions Live to the experts.

What You Will Learn

  • The distinct career paths and backgrounds of our drug design and discovery panel of female computational chemists
  • The importance of a team mentality and the role of mentors to overcome career obstacles in computational chemistry
  • Input regarding skills, characteristics, behaviors, and experiences necessary to advance as a female computational chemist in the drug discovery and development arena
  • How their individual roles propel translational research from computer bench to bedside
