Molecular Modelling is a modern tool that generates useful knowledge for materials or drug development by understanding the underlying microscopic mechanisms. Prof. Robert J. Woods, visiting from the University of Georgia (USA), gave a research talk on one specific example for this on Friday, 22 April 2016.
The topic of his talk was a computational chemistry perspective for “Understanding Flu Binding to Human Tissue”. In the future his ideas might lead to the creation of an anti-infective for flu prophylaxis. The talk was hosted by Prof. Dirk Reith and Dr Karl Kirschner.
During his visit, Prof. Woods also met with several members of the Institute of Visual Computing.
