iHuman Institute at ShanghaiTech University and Schrödinger, LLC held a Schrödinger Software Workshop.

2017.5.15, invited by Prof. Suwen Zhao of iHuman Institute at ShanghaiTech University, the Scientific Support Director of Schrödinger LLC Jianxin Duan gave a two-day joint host lectures to ShanghaiTech members.

The workshop mainly focused on protein modeling, molecular dynamics, antibody modeling, structure based drug design and ligand based drug discovery. During the lectures, Jianxin Duan elucidated the general methods of computer-aided drug discovery on scientific research, and summarized the universal roles based on known experience. By using the models that the Schrödinger, LLC offered, which greatly enriched the content of the workshop and deepened the understandings of the participators of molecular design field and their experience on drug discovery.

The Schrödinger LLC was founded in 1990, up to now, it has about 300 employees around the world. The aim of the Schrödinger LLC is to improve human health and quality of life through development, distribution, and application of advanced computational methods that transform the way scientists design therapeutics and materials. The most representative application of the company, Schrödinger Software, becoming the most authoritative software in the field of computer-aided drug discovery, and is widely used in drug design, molecular dynamics simulation and some other scientific research.
