Scientific Advisor to President Obama to Keynote Upcoming CHI Conference


Cambridge Healthtech Institute and Bio-IT World Present the Eleventh Annual 



June 6-8, 2011

Royal Sonesta Boston Hotel - Cambridge, MA http://www.healthtech.com/sbd

Keynote Speaker:


Millisecond-Long Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Proteins on a
Special-Purpose Machine

David E. Shaw, Ph.D., Chief Scientist, D. E. Shaw Research

David E. Shaw serves as chief scientist of D. E. Shaw Research and as a
senior research fellow at the Center 
for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at Columbia University. He
received his Ph.D. from Stanford 
University in 1980, served on the faculty of the Computer Science Department
at Columbia until 1986, and 
founded the D. E. Shaw group in 1988. Since 2001, Dr. Shaw has been involved
in full-time, hands-on research 
in the field of computational biochemistry. His lab is currently involved in
the development of new algorithms 
and machine architectures for high-speed molecular dynamics simulations of
biological macromolecules, 
and in the application of such simulations to basic scientific research and
computer-assisted drug design.

Dr. Shaw was appointed to the President's Council of Advisors on Science and
Technology by President 
Clinton in 1994, and again by President Obama in 2009. He is a fellow of the
American Academy of Arts 
and Sciences and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
