Graduate Fellow: Robin Betz (2017)

Robin Betz, from Boulder, Colorado

Studying at Stanford University

Research: Robin's research aims to use GPUs to understand how drugs bind to their protein targets. She develops methods that combine all-atom molecular dynamics simulation with machine learning to computationally observe ligand-protein binding. She is interested in finding out how small differences in molecules can lead to large changes in cell signaling. Research Link

Bio: Robin is a third year PhD candidate in the Biophysics program at Stanford University, where she is advised by Ron Dror. She is interested in both developing and applying new methods for molecular dynamics simulation. She holds a B.S. in Bioinformatics from UC San Diego.
