19th Annual European User Group Meeting (EUGM)

The 19th Annual European User Group Meeting (EUGM) was held in Berlin (Germany). On the first day workshops with different topics revolving around Schrödinger Maestro and Live Design took place.
A series of presentations held in the following days focused on other interesting technological advances. Angelo Pugliese presented how they identified and optimized the first fascin 1 inhibitor, that is thought to have a potential role in tumor invasion and metastasis. We really enjoyed his talk as the presentation showed their screening process in detail.
Pieter Stouten, the director of computational technologies at Galapagos chaired the panel discussion "Molecular Design in 2025". The take home message of the discussion was that force fields have to be improved to enable simulations of DNA and RNA interactions. After a day full of interesting presentations, a guided bus tour through Berlin brought us to the "Wasserwerk" where this years eUGM dinner took place.
The eUGM was a good opportunity to meet users from all over Europe as well as the great Schrödinger team.
