• Summary:

    Initially trained as an organic chemist, Laurent worked as a laboratory technician in the drug discovery research department at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) from 2006 to 2007. Motivated by his interest in mechanistic aspects of reactions, he then completed his Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry (density functional theory) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Peter Chen at the ETH Zürich.
    His work in the group of Prof. Dr. Caflisch involves computer-aided drug design (CADD) in collaboration with medicinal chemists (Prof. Dr. Nevado). Furthermore, he develops de novo methods for the exploration of ligand chemical space via virtual couplings.
