Stern to Lecture on Computational Estimation of Binding Affinities

Posted on 2/21/2011 11:35:39 AM

Dr. Harry Stern, assistant professor of Chemistry at the University of Rochester, will visit the Chemistry Department on Friday, February 25, 2011, to meet with faculty and students and give a guest lecture in the department's seminar series.

The lecture, “Computational Estimation of Protein-Ligand Binding Affinities,” will be given in Weyandt 149 from 3:35 to 4:25 p.m. All are welcome to attend, and light refreshments will be served.

About Dr. Stern's Research

Our research focuses on atomic-detail computer calculations to examine problems in biochemistry and structural biology. Recent work has focused on the ability of scoring functions based on crystal structures of water-soluble proteins to identify native structures of membrane proteins, algorithms for performing molecular simulations with variable protonation states at constant pH, and for fast calculation of electrostatic forces.
