Greenberg Early Career Investigator Lecture Set, Sept. 28
Dr. César de la Fuente, a presidential assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania, will present the Judith H. Greenberg Early Career Investigator Lecture on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 1 p.m. ET via Zoom and NIH videocast. The lecture is open to everyone in the scientific community.
During his talk, “Artificial Intelligence Approaches for Antibiotic Discovery,” de la Fuente will describe his research developing computational approaches for antibiotic design and discovery. He believes that innovations in artificial intelligence may help replenish our arsenal of effective drugs, such as those used to treat antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections.
After a 30-minute lecture, de la Fuente will answer questions from participants on Zoom about his research and career path.
This annual series highlights the achievements of NIGMS’s early career grantees. It is designed to introduce students and other early career scientists to cutting-edge research and inspire them to pursue careers in the biomedical sciences.
Established in 2016 and originally called the NIGMS Director’s Early Career Investigator Lecture, the series was renamed in 2021 to honor former NIGMS deputy director Greenberg, who retired in 2020 after 45 years of service to NIH.
Anyone can attend via NIH videocast. Students and trainees are encouraged to register in Zoom so they can participate in the live Q&A.
