LNC Season 3. AI in drug discovery with Francesca Grisoni

The Late Night Conference with Wilhelm Huck is back again with its exciting new Season 3. Just like last season, we are bringing it to you LIVE from Radboud University Nijmegen with a studio audience hosted by Prof. Wilhelm Huck. Of course, we will still follow our tradition of live streaming so that you can enjoy these fascinating lectures from your home, in the lab or on the bus! In this new season, we will dive deep with the exciting topic of Chemistry and AI. From complex learning to using AI for drug discovery, we have a range of topics covered with our speaker lineup!

The fourth episode of Late Night Conference with Wilhelm Huck is on Tuesday 9th May, 20h00 CET!

This episode will be streamed live on our YouTube channel Late Night Conference with WH (don’t forget to subscribe & watch our previous exciting episodes!) from Giga-Bite at Huygensgebouw in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, where we are excited to have you in our audience!!

Please note – no ticket is needed if you only want to watch the stream on YouTube! 

Our next guest has just received the ERC Starting Grant, and is ready for a new chapter to commence! With her research, and the freedom the ERC Grant has granted her (pun intended), Francesca Grisoni, an Assistant Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology, is building her own team to explore the untapped potential of AI to discover new therapeutics and medicines.

Francesca will tell us all we need to know about the ‘language of chemistry’, on the 9th of May. The AI renaissance has led to the development of ‘Chemical Language Models’, inspired by natural language processing approaches. These models are used to generate molecules de novo, which hold the desired biological properties. Count us intrigued!

To prepare, you can binge watch Season 1 and 2 on our YouTube channel. You may also enjoy this highlight reel from our last seasons. You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram, as well as subscribe to our mailing list for the latest updates!
