On average the course takes about 20 hours over a span of 5 weeks to complete.

Users will need to create an account on before registering.

Schrödinger's online course, Introduction to Computational Antibody Engineering, will show how industry-leading computational molecular modeling solutions are used to aid in antibody discovery and design and how to incorporate these computational approaches into your research project. This course will also provide a chance to work hands-on with Schrödinger's BioLuminate software.

Whether you are looking for professional development, expanded skills for your CV, or a consistent way to onboard new employees, this course will provide practical applications of computational modeling relevant to a wide range of research topics. At the end of the course, you will have a chance to apply the concepts you've learned to a 5-part case study using cutting-edge technology.

Upon verified completion of the course participants will receive a certificate of completion and a Schrödinger Badge

Course Outline:

Broken up into 5 modules, this course is entirely self-paced. It will take approximately 20 hours for someone new to computational modeling to complete (actual time may vary depending on experience). The modules can be done on your own schedule.

Course Requirements

Access to a computer with a high-speed internet connection (8 Mbps or better). We also recommend using a mouse, but this is not required.


Schrödinger’s online courses do not require any books, access to specific journals (though many references are included for those who do have journal access), or access to Schrödinger software. Participants should be able to work on a computer with reliable high-speed internet, and have a working knowledge of protein structure and function.

If you have any questions please email

In order to remain compliant with the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations (eCFR), Schrödinger is not allowed to grant software access to people geographically located in countries subject to U.S. sanctions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will material still be available after a course ends?

While access to the software will end when the course closes, some of the material within the course (slides, papers, and tutorials) are available for download so that you can refer back to it after the course. Other materials, such as videos, quizzes, and access to the software, will only be available for the duration of the course.

Do I need access to the software to be able to do the course? Do I have to purchase the software separately?

For the duration of the course, you will have access to a web-based version of Schrödinger’s BioLuminate. You do not have to separately purchase access to the software. Please note that Schrödinger software is only to be used for course-related purposes.

Does this course teach you how to use the software or about design principles?

As this has been designed with a person who is new to molecular modeling and antibody design in mind, the course begins with an introduction to how molecular modeling can be applied to antibody engineering problems. The initial modules will help the participant get oriented to the software and perform basic tasks. The middle modules will focus on how to set-up, run and analyze various antibody modeling workflows (such as aggregation prediction, humanization, epitope/paratope analysis, and residue scanning). The final module will be a case study where participants will apply all the concepts they have learned to design and assess a new antibody variant.

How long do courses run? How long do I have to do the course? Do I have to complete the course by a certain time?

Schrödinger’s online courses are completely asynchronous, meaning you can work at your own pace and whenever suits your schedule during a course session. Course sessions are 5 weeks in length, with all course content being available during that time. In order to be considered for a certificate and LinkedIn badge, you must complete all required elements of the course (quizzes, assignments, and the final case study) while the course is in session.
