Computational molecular modeling tools are changing the world of drug discovery and design. And yet while managing automated systems is anticipated to be an expectation of chemists going forward,1 employers are having a hard time finding workers skilled in the tools they need.2

Schrödinger's online courses show how industry-leading computational molecular modeling tools are used in drug discovery and materials design, and how you can incorporate these tools into research projects. In addition to utilizing modern techniques such as active learning and multimodal teaching, these courses will also provide a chance to work hands-on with Schrödinger software.

Whether you are looking for professional development, expanded skills for your CV, or a consistent way to onboard new employees, these courses will provide practical applications of computational modeling relevant to a wide range of research topics. At the end of a course, you will have a chance to apply the concepts you've learned to a case study using cutting-edge technology.
