Travel Award 2017
As the section Editor-in-Chief of Computation, I am pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Computation Travel Award:
Vladas Oleinikovas, Ph.D. student at the University College London, whose research focuses on application of atomistic simulation and enhanced sampling techniques to identify cryptic binding pockets in target proteins of pharmaceutical interest. Vladas is planning to present his work “Understanding cryptic pocket formation in protein targets by enhanced sampling simulations” at the Gordon Research Conference on Computer Aided Drug Design. The award consists of 800 Swiss Francs towards attending this conference.
It was a difficult decision, given the exceptional quality of applications for the award, and on behalf of the award committee, I wish to thank all applicants and to congratulate Mr. Vladas Oleinikovas for his accomplishments.
Prof. Dr. Rainer Breitling,
Section Editor-in-Chief of Computation
