Over the last few months members of the TuttleLab have been presenting their work at conferences in Edinburgh, Southampton and Vancouver.
Alex and Hamish travelled to Vancouver for WATOC 2022, the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists triennial conference. Over the course of the week long conference both students attended lectures by renowned chemists and also presented their own work in the poster sessions.
Hamish presented his poster on the Martinoid force field – a Martini force field for discovery of self-assembling peptoids – at WATOC earlier this summer. This work has subsequently been presented as an oral presentation at this years Peptoid Summit and at the ScotCHEM symposium in Edinburgh. At both conferences this work was well received, and we look forward to applying it to discover new assembling small peptoids soon!
Alex also presented his work on anti-microbial peptides from constant pH molecular dynamics and artifical intelligence at WATOC in Vancouver and at ScotCHEM in Edinburgh. Alex’s work was well received at both conferences and is being actively utilised both in the group and in the department as whole to understand more about the peptides interaction with bilayers.
And last but not least, Ross has presented his work twice this summer as well, presenting his work on accelerating catalyst design through machine learning at the ScotCHEM symposia in Edinburgh and the Eastern European Machine Learning summer school hosted in Vilnuis, Lithuania. The school was ran by employees of Google and Deepmind. Although in preliminary research stages his work acheived good attention at both conferences.
Well done to Hamish, Alex and Ross!
