Schrödinger Molecular Modeling Software


ITS Research Computing recently acquired a site license for the Schrödinger Molecular Modeling Software.

Access to this world class software is made possible through the collaboration between ITS, the Office of the Provost and interested researchers, all of whom understand the benefits of continually investing in the exploration of the such invaluable learning tools. The Schrödinger Molecular Modeling Software helps scientists to accelerate their research and development activities, as well as to make novel discoveries.

Schrödinger is a leading provider of advanced molecular simulations and informatics software solutions and services for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and materials science research. The predictive power of Schrödinger’s software allows scientists to accelerate their research and development activities, reduce research costs, and make novel discoveries that might otherwise not be possible. Co-founded in 1990 by Columbia Chemistry Professor Richard A. Friesner, Schrödinger has made significant long-term investments in basic research that led to scientific breakthroughs across many areas of drug discovery and materials science.  Hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific publications by Schrödinger scientists are frequently among the most heavily cited in their fields. Educators have the opportunity to demonstrate molecules and teach experimental workflows using the software students are most likely to employ in industry.

This site license gives all Northeastern University faculty, students and researchers access to the Small Molecule Drug Discovery, Biologics and Materials Science suites through the current year. The molecular visualization program PyMol is also available through a separate download.
