The Isayev lab works at the interface of theoretical chemistry, pharmaceutical sciences and computer science. In particular, we are using molecular simulations and artificial intelligence (AI) to solve hard problems in chemistry. We are working towards the acceleration of molecular discovery by the combination of AI, informatics and high-throughput quantum chemistry. We also focus on both generative and predictive ML models for chemical and biological data. Details on specific projects can be found below.
