At Schrödinger our mission is to revolutionize drug discovery through the use of breakthrough computational methods. The latest advances in our technology allow us to identify high quality lead compounds and efficiently optimize them for clinical development. Our drug discovery team of 20+ scientists includes designers, modelers, computational chemists, medicinal chemists, crystallographers, biochemists, and biologists with well over 100 years of drug discovery experience.
The drug discovery team is supported by more than 100 software developers. Three of the programs we’ve worked on in the past 5 years have progressed into the clinic and an additional one is expected to enter trials later in the year. Members of the drug discovery group are included as inventors on more than 40 US patents and patent applications filed by our collaborators. As our group continues to grow, we are looking for highly motivated individuals with experience designing drug candidates in 3D.
