STEM Ed Announcement: Curing Diseases with Code: Molecular Simulations in Drug Discover



This is a UMass Amherst program.
 Contact information is below.
 ==============================================       
 
 
 
 Could the next medication you take come from a computer? Join Woody
 Sherman, Ph.D. as he shares his research involving scientific software,
 drug design and how he uses code to cure diseases.
 
 Please help us advertise (and please come!), forwarding the
 announcement below to any who may be interested.   All are very much
 welcome (kids, college students, your parents).  You'll learn something
 if you come.  And you might win a prize!  Please check out our website
 with videos of some past events, MailScanner has detected a possible
 fraud attempt from "www.scitechcafe.org" claiming to be
 www.scitechcafe.org  and like us on Facebook! .  
 
 Hope to see you there!
