Unconventional Computing

Nov 9, 2018

T-cell-based immunotherapy is one of the most promising new directions for cancer research. This kind of immunotherapy is time-consuming and expensive to conduct in a traditional wet lab, and so computational models have become invaluable in helping researchers to direct their investigation. In today’s podcast, we will learn about a molecular docking tool developed at Rice which is tremendously effective for this difficult problem.

Host: Cannon Lewis, a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Rice University.

Guest: Dr. Dinler Antunes, a Rice University postdoctoral research associate who works in the Laboratory of Professor Lydia Kavraki, the Noah Harding Professor of Computer Science and of Bioengineering at Rice University.
