Panelists (so far):

Nicole Renaud, PhD, Novartis

Dr. Renaud has more than ten years of experience in molecular and computational biology—five of which has been spent in early drug discovery research. She earned a B.Sc. in Biology and Mathematics at Eastern Michigan University and a Ph.D. in Human and Statistical Genetics at Washington University.

Christine Hajdin, PhD, Ribometrix

Dr. Hajdin has a diverse history implementing computational approaches in drug discovery. She worked as a Data Scientist at Explorys (now IBM Watson Health Care) and as an Investigator in the CADD group at Novartis. She currently utilizes her computational and screening expertise to improve the efficiency of the drug discovery pipeline at Ribometrix, where she is the associate director of computational sciences and screening.

Timothy Cardozo, MD-PhD, NYU Langone Health

Dr. Cardozo is a tenured Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at NYU School of Medicine. His research is focused on 3D-structure based rational drug design, molecular engineering, cheminformatics and bioinformatics. Dr. Cardozo was awarded a New Innovator award, a NIDA Avant-Garde Award for HIV/AIDS Research, an American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Grand Opportunities award and a Highly Innovative Tactics to Interrupt Transmission of HIV award. Dr. Cardozo was trained in the MSTP program at NYU School of Medicine to receive his MD and PhD degrees.
