Committee

Organizing Committee

Jarl Wikberg

Pharmaceutical Biosciences, Uppsala University, Sweden

Research interest: Aiding the drug discovery process with computer-aided decision support using the proteochemometric method, and also to develop new drugs based on natural products.

Chanin Nantasenamat

Center of Data Mining and Biomedical Informatics, Faculty of Medical Technology, Mahidol University, Thailand

Research interest: Towards understanding the origins of bioactivity of target proteins using computer-aided drug design approaches (e.g. QSAR, proteochemometrics modeling, molecular docking/dynamics and computational chemistry).

Ola Spjuth

Pharmaceutical Biosciences, Uppsala University, Sweden

Research interest: Developing new methods and applications to meet the demands of high-throughput biology and drug discovery, using high-throughput e-infrastructures and Big Data analytics frameworks, aiming towards “next-generation bioinformatics”.

Martin Eklund

Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Karolinska Institute, Sweden

Research interest: Predictive modeling for precision medicine and large-scale clinical trials. Statistical methods development for improving prediction and validation of statistical models, including prediction region estimation.

Lars Carlsson

Discovery Sciences, AstraZeneca, Sweden

Research interest: Development of algorithms enabling drug discovery and decision making. Covering core numerical, mathematical and architectural considerations all the way to the end user experience. Knowledge discovery applied to any dataset, from small to huge datasets.
