Career Talk: D. E. Shaw Research Information Session
Thursday, March 9, 2017
5:00 pm-6:30 pm
Connor Auditorium, FLTC
 
Food will be served!

D. E. Shaw Research is an independent research laboratory that conducts scientific research and technological development in the field of computational biochemistry.  Our group focuses on the design of novel algorithms and machine architectures for high-speed molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of proteins and other biological macromolecules, with the ultimate aim of significantly advancing the process of drug discovery.  We have designed and developed multiple generations of Anton, a massively parallel supercomputer that executes MD simulations orders of magnitude faster than was previously possible.  Anton has now simulated the behavior of a number of proteins for periods as long as several milliseconds, revealing biologically and pharmaceutically relevant aspects of protein dynamics.

Members of our group include computational chemists and biologists, computer scientists and applied mathematicians, and computer architects and engineers of all seniority levels, working collaboratively within a tightly coupled interdisciplinary research environment under the leadership of chief scientist Dr. David E. Shaw.
Join us for an overview of our work and a discussion of current openings in the lab.

About The Speakers
 
Brent Gregersen
Brent Gregersen is involved in the development of improved force fields for biomolecular simulation. He earned a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Minnesota, and a B.S. in biochemistry from the University of California, San Diego. His previous research focused on a variety of topics geared toward the development, implementation, and application of novel methods for multi-scale quantum simulations of biological reactions.
 
Stone Jiang
Stone Jiang is involved in the development of novel computational chemistry methods. He graduated from Caltech with dual B.S. degrees in chemistry and biology. As an undergraduate, he researched antibody-antigen interface design and antibody engineering.

Lukas Bane
Lukas Bane is a member of the strategic growth team at D. E. Shaw Research.  He earned a B.S. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from Harvard University.  As a graduate student, Lukas used X-ray crystallography to study the structure and function of the divalent metal transporter required for dietary iron absorption.  He was also heavily involved in alumni coordinating within his department and founded the MCB Career Development Program, which helps prepare current departmental graduate students for the job market.
