Dr Sarah Guerin is a postdoctoral researcher and physicist in SSPC and part of the Department of Physics and Bernal Institute in the University of Limerick. She completed her PhD in the predictive design of bio-molecular crystals, where she developed an integrated modelling and characterisation methodology on amino acid and peptide based energy harvesters for eco-friendly IoT and medical device applications. She is the 2018 BACG Young Scientist of the Year and a 2019 Lindau Nobel Alumnus.
This webinar will guide you through Sarah’s work in:
1. Investigating molecular interactions in manufacturing processes
2. Tracking macroscopic crystal properties through co-crystallisation
3. Studying influence of anisotropic crystal properties on crystal dissolution
Relevance: Modelling, crystallisation and in drug formulation.
Webinar key messages:
1. Molecular modelling uses nanoscale insight to understand and engineer macroscale properties and industrial scale processes.
2. Molecular modelling can be highly quantitative in its prediction of bulk properties.
3. Molecular modelling has broad applications and ever-growing potential.
