Prof. Vijay Pande Stanford University, USA1 Talk
Prof. Pande received a BA in physics from Princeton University in 1992. In 1995, he received his PhD in physics from MIT, studying as a NSF Fellow under Profs. Toyoichi Tanaka and Alexander Grosberg. Prof. Pande is currently an Associate Professor of Chemistry and (by courtesy) of Structural Biology. His... read morecurrent research centers on the development and application of novel grid computing simulation techniques to address problems in chemical biology. In particular he has pioneered novel distributed computing methodology to break fundamental barriers in the simulation of kinetics and thermodynamics of proteins and nucleic acids. His current research also includes novel simulation methods for high precision drug binding affinity calculations, protein design and synthetic bio-mimetic polymers.
