Schrödinger Convenes Global Educators For Second Annual Educator’s Day
“Advanced computational tools are rapidly changing the scientific landscape and educators are increasingly being challenged to equip students with the skill sets needed to thrive in science careers,” said
Educator’s Day will feature a series of live webinar presentations from leading educators at top academic institutions, as well as teaching demonstrations by Schrödinger scientists. The event offers networking opportunities for like-minded educators who want to incorporate modernized teaching methodologies into their courses.
“Education technology not only gives students a leg up in a competitive workforce, it can also help address the educational disparities that still exist in countries all over the world,” said
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gallardo-Williams developed a set of globally connected virtual reality labs that served as an alternative to in-person learning during forced university closures. The labs were open access and were used by at least 50 other universities during the pandemic.
Presentations will be given from skilled science professors and teachers who have successfully incorporated educational technology, such as computational tools, into courses ranging from organic chemistry to bioinformatics to pharmaceutical science.

Schrödinger is transforming the way therapeutics and materials are discovered. Schrödinger has pioneered a physics-based software platform that enables discovery of high-quality, novel molecules for drug development and materials applications more rapidly and at lower cost compared to traditional methods. The software platform is used by biopharmaceutical and industrial companies, academic institutions, and government laboratories around the world. Schrödinger’s multidisciplinary drug discovery team also leverages the software platform to advance collaborative programs and its own pipeline of novel therapeutics to address unmet medical needs.
Founded in 1990, Schrödinger has more than 700 employees and is engaged with customers and collaborators in more than 70 countries. To learn more, visit www.schrodinger.com and follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
