VIU Science & Technology Community Lecture Series

Heather and Savannah gave a Science & Technology Community Lecture at VIU. Savannah’s talk was titled “Molecular Docking Studies of Carfentanil Precursors in the µ-opioid receptor” and Heather’s talk was titled “Under Pressure: Using computational methods to investigate pressure-resistance in deep Sea
organisms.” Thank you to everyone who came out!

USRA Showcase 2022

Today is the last day of the summer research season. Thank you to all undergraduate students who worked in the Molecular Modelling Lab this summer – your hard work makes everything possible!

VIU held the annual USRA Showcase event today, where Simon and Savannah presented the results of their summer research. Very well done to both of you!

CSTCC 2022 and WATOC 2020

The VIU Molecular Modelling group made quite the splash at CSTCC 2022 in Kelowna, BC. Heather gave an invited talk and Simon and Savannah both gave excellent poster presentations, with Savannah taking home the prize for the Best Undergraduate Poster. Congratulations Savannah! Conference highlights included many excellent scientific talks, great networking opportunities, a visit to Kangaroo Creek Farm and the banquet at Summerhill Pyramid Winery.

Heather also gave an invited communication at WATOC 2020 in Vancouver, BC. It was wonderful to be among the international computational chemistry community in-person again, and many great connections were made!
