AI in Chemical Biology: New Frontiers

AI in Chemical Biology: New Frontiers

Wednesday, March 17, 2021, 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT

The New York Academy of Sciences
7 World Trade Center, New York City, USA

Presented By

Chemical Biology Discussion Group

The New York Academy of Sciences


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to enhance our understanding of chemical biology – with broad applications that include predicting reaction chemistry, automating lab processes, detangling complex biochemical processes, and hastening drug discovery and development. With rapid developments over the last decade in machine learning, natural language processing and other aspects of AI, we are at the precipice of a new era in this field, however appropriately integrating these methodologies into chemical biology research can be a daunting. To address these challenges, this one day symposium will showcase recent advances in chemical biology that were enabled by AI and highlight best practices for employing AI techniques in this field.

Registration for the event will open soon. Please check back shortly for more information, or follow us on social media for updates!
