Rebecca Wade, leader of the Molecular Modeling (MCM) group, is the lecturer for the 2020 Molecular Graphics and Modelling Society (MGMS) Lecture Tour – see here.
Although the lectures planned to take place at various venues in the UK have all been postponed due to the pandemic, Rebecca did give an online lecture in November on “Computational Approaches to Protein Dynamics and Binding Kinetics for Drug Discovery”.
The lecture can be viewed on the new MGMS YouTube channel.
The MGMS was formed in 1981 to bring together scientists working in different fields of study—such as chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics and computer science—who have a common interest in computational molecular modelling and molecular graphics. One of those activities is to organize MGMS Lecture Tours to highlight cutting-edge research in the field.
HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
