POSITION TITLE: Group Leader in chemoinformatics at the Institute of Structural Biology, Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) – German Research Center for Environmental Health (GmbH)




Research activity of Dr. Tetko group is devoted to the development and application of informatics and machine learning methods to analysis of chemical problems. The covered areas included physico-chemical, environmental chemistry, and drug discovery. The current research interests include computer aided drug discovery, development of QSPR models to predict physico-chemical and biological activity of molecules, use of different structure representations (topological, inductive, quantum-chemical, shape signatures, pH-dependent descriptors, etc.) to achieve the most accurate predictions, use of linear and non-linear machine learning methods to address data of different complexity and size. He currently coordinates “Big Data in Chemistry” Horizon2020 MSC ITN and also is in charge of Virtual Computational Chemistry Laboratory (http://www.vcclab.org) and On-line Chemical database and Modeling Environment (http://ochem.eu).
