25 - 27 October, 2016
Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten, Berlin, Germany

Prof. Dr. Andrea Volkamer

Junior Professor, Institute of Physiology
Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany

Andrea Volkamer received her Master degree in Bioinformatics from Saarland University in 2007. After a one year research stay at Purdue University (USA), she joint the group of Prof. Dr. M. Rarey at the ZBH, Hamburg. In 2013, she defended her PhD thesis with focus on computational druggability predictions. After a short ProExzellezia PostDoc period, she joint BioMedX Innovation Center in Heidelbergas a PostDoc researcher, where she has been working on tools to assist the development of selective kinase inhibitors. Since July 2016, Andrea Volkamer became an assistant professor at the Charité Berlin with the focus on in-silico toxicicology predictions.

17:00 Reducing kinase off-target activity by identifying specificitydetermining subpockets

  • Many kinase inhibitors are unintentionally promiscuous

  • Novel structure-based approach to tackle compound selectivity deficits

  • Identification and visualization of kinase-specific subpockets
