Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling is very pleased to share the news that a new Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogenous Systems (HetSys) has been announced today by EPSRC. WCPM will play a key role in this Centre.
Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling is recruiting to two Assistant Professor positions: an Assistant Professor in Predictive Modelling, which is a joint appointment between the Warwick Mathematics Institute and the School of Engineering, and an Assistant Professor in Multiscale Modelling within the School of Engineering. Please contact James Kermode or Nigel Stocks for informal enquires. The closing date for both positions is 21 Nov 2018.
Drug discovery could be significantly accelerated thanks to a new high precision machine-learning model, developed by an international collaboration of researchers, including the University of Warwick. The algorithm - partly devised by Dr James Kermode from WCPM - can accurately predict the interactions between a protein and a drug molecule based on a handful of reference experiments or simulations. Using just a few training references, it can predict whether or not a candidate drug molecule will bind to a target protein with 99% accuracy.
