Andreas Schüller

Associate Professor at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile with 10+ years of independent and post-doctoral research, teaching and mentoring experience at universities in Germany, Singapore, New York and Chile.

His lab is dedicated to deciphering the molecular code of protein-ligand interactions at an atomic level. His research is situated in the areas of bioinformatics and cheminformatics, where his lab develops new computational methods for predicting molecular binding events using concepts from structural biology, biochemistry, drug design, big data, machine learning, protein engineering and software engineering.

These computational methods are then applied in his research for the repositioning of drugs, the discovery of antifungal, anticancer and anticoagulant compounds, as well as the design of oligopeptides as modulators of the intestinal microbiota.
