Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Switzerland
Gisbert Schneider studied biochemistry and computer science at the Free University of Berlin, Germany. He joined F.Hoffmann-La Roche Pharmaceuticals in Basel, Switzerland, where he headed the cheminformatics group until 2002. From 2002-2009 he was full professor of chem- and bioinformatics at Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany. Currently, he is full professor of computer-assisted drug design at ETH Zürich, Switzerland. Schneider coined the terms “scaffold-hopping” and “frequent hitter”, and has published more than 350 articles and five textbooks on molecular design. His current research activities concentrate on method development for de novo molecular design and adaptive optimization.
