This workshop will provide the theoretical background as well as discussion of the current approaches to Molecular Docking and Virtual screening. The workshop will also discuss the different software available and will focus on Cheminformatics methods for lead identification and optimization.
Dr. Rebecca Davis
Dr. Rebecca Davis is an organic chemist at The University of Manitoba. Her research is focused on exploring of the mechanisms of asymmetric organocatalytic reactions and broadening the range of organic reactions in which asymmetric organocatalysis can be applied. Dr. Davis current research topics include: mechanisms in asymmetric phase transfer catalysis; counter-ion interactions in non-covalent organocatalysis; and development of stereoselective rearrangement reactions. Dr. Rebecca Davis obtained her Ph.D at the University of California, Davis, and conducted Postdoctoral Research at The Centre for Catalysis at Aahus University.
