SCC77 Annual Meeting, New York, New York

December 11, 2023 to December 13, 2023

Schrödinger is excited to be participating in the SCC77 Annual Meeting conference taking place on December 11th - 13th in New York, New York. Stop by our booth 203 and join us for a presentation by Jeff Sanders, Product Manager of CPG at Schrödinger, titled “Accelerating the Design of Sunscreen and Sunscreen Formulation using Computational Methods”. 

Speaker: Jeff Sanders, Product Manager of CPG
Date/Time: December 13th | 12:20 EDT
Session J: Color & Photoprotection
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the USA, with approximately 5 million people treated per year. Despite being one of the most preventable cancers, it is still a major public health concern due to inadequate skin protection. Chemical sunscreens, one of the most effective preventatives, can adsorb and scatter ultraviolet (UV) photons before damage occurs to skin. The choice of UV organic filter molecules and subsequent testing of formulations is costly and raises ethical concerns when testing on animals. Molecular modeling tools, using first principles calculations, can be used to reduce in-vitro testing and minimize in-vivo tests when developing new formulations. In this talk prediction of adsorption spectra and photostability of sunscreen actives will be presented, along with methods to simulate full sunscreen production formulations.
