Silver Jubilee Award

To support postdoctoral and young independent researchers, and to recognise our Silver Jubilee, MGMS has established a Silver Jubilee Prize. This is awarded to outstanding young researchers in the field.

9th MGMS Silver-Jubilee Award was won by:

Sereina Rinikertankard
Prof. Sereina Riniker
ETH Zürich, Switzerland

The MGMS is delighted to award the 9th Silver Jubilee Prize to Professor Sereina Riniker of ETH Zürich. Professor Riniker studied for her PhD at that same institution with Professor Wilfred van Gunsteren, and then spent some time working with Dr Greg Landrum at Novartis in Basel and the USA before returning to Zürich in 2014. This prize recognises her contributions to the development of the RDKit open source library for chemoinformatics and the GROMOS molecular dynamics program, and her ongoing research work on the applications of molecular dynamics in biomolecular systems
