18th Annual European User Group Meeting (EUGM)

The 18th Annual European User Group Meeting (EUGM) was held in Rome (Italy). In the first two days workshops with different topics revolving around Schrödinger Maestro took place and we especially enjoyed the Python workshop that demonstrated the power of interactive Python within the Maestro interface. A series of presentations held in the following days focused on other interesting technological advances. Mario Lobell, the senior principle scientist of Bayer AG talk about FEP+ and water maps and underlines the importance of water in the optimization process. Robert Abel the senior vice president of Schrödinger cited Eugen Cordes "It is difficult to discover a drug" and shared his opinion on what we can improve in the process of drug discovery to make it even more efficient. After a day full of interesting presentations, the eUGM dinner took place in the Galleria Del Cardinale.

The eUGM was a good opportunity to meet users from all over Europe as well as the great Schrödinger team.
