Event Description

There are as many potential drug-like chemicals as stars in the whole universe. Synthesizing and testing all those compounds experimentally is impossible. Denis Fourches, assistant professor of Chemistry in NC State’s College of Sciences, will discuss the rise of cheminformatics and artificial intelligence to model, visualize, and virtually screen those chemicals for various applications in drug discovery, chemical risk assessment, and green chemistry.
