Robert Abel, Ph.D., Schrödinger

Robert Abel, Ph.D. Robert Abel, Senior Vice President, Science, is responsible for leading efforts to further improve induced-fit docking, free energy perturbation theory, physics-based affinity scoring, and protein structure prediction; as well as supervising the Schrödinger R&D portfolio. Robert obtained his PhD from Columbia University for his work with Professor Richard Friesner on methods to quantify the role of the solvent in protein-ligand binding. He has also been awarded NSF and DHS research fellowships; published on a variety of topics including protein-ligand binding, protein dynamics, protein structure prediction, energy function development, and fluid thermodynamics; served as a referee for several prestigious journals; and co-authored multiple patent applications. Since joining Schrödinger in 2009, Robert has advanced through a number of roles to his current position.
