We are pleased to host Dr. Woody Sherman, Chief Science Officer for Silicon Therapeutics, an innovative company headquartered in both Boston, MA and Suzhou, China. Dr. Sherman will run an iCons-like case study on drug design: sharing information on public health and biochemistry aspects of the problem, challenging students to develop novel solutions, and then sharing the Silicon Therapeutics solution strategy. It will be a fascinating evening of interdisciplinary science in service of solving a real-world problem.


The Integrative Learning Center is located in the center of campus, between the campus pond and the Campus Center.
