The evolution of computing resources of the past decade enabled the high-fidelity simulation of the complex systems found in molecular biology. Such novel chemicals are vital for solving the world’s most urgent problems, from transforming drug discovery to faster adoption of zero carbon materials.
To help foster a discussion on the advances in programmable chemistry that promise to unlock a new wave of innovation by creating more standardized and automated platforms for delivering chemistry, BlueYard is co-hosting a roundtable and panel discussion as part of the Falling Walls Science Summit in Berlin. The panelists will include:
- Lee Cronin, Founder & CEO, Chemify
- Profesor Sophia Yaliraki, Imperial College London
- Marwin Segler, Senior Researcher, Microsoft
- Djork-Arne Clevert, Vice President, Head of Machine Learning Research, Pfizer
Among other topics, we will discuss the impact that computational or programmable chemistry might have on helping to accelerate the decarbonization of the petrochemical industry, parallels in recent breakthrough science areas including in synthetic biology, and strategies for establishing common standards and data sharing to overcome potential high barriers to entry in this emerging industry.
We look forward to a lively discussion and hope to see you there.
