Schrödinger Hosts First Annual Educator’s Day and Announces “Teaching with Schrödinger” Program
“We’re counting on today’s students to be tomorrow’s leading scientists, so it’s critically important to modernize the curriculum by incorporating hands-on work with the advanced computational tools that drive real-world discovery programs,” said
Educator’s Day will feature presentations from skilled instructors who have successfully incorporated computational tools into courses ranging from organic chemistry to bioinformatics to pharmaceutical science. In addition, Schrödinger scientists will host breakout sessions to brainstorm new approaches for engaging students with the material and drawing connections to real-world applications. Lessons from the event will inform the Teaching with Schrödinger curriculum.
“Facilitating effective learning is not just an art, it’s a science – and it requires continually adapting pedagogy and curricula to incorporate cutting-edge tools and techniques so that students gain the knowledge and enjoyment they need to succeed in their lifelong learning and in their careers,” said Dr.

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 over 450 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.
