Video: Dr. Zoe Cournia on the PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC

As the first recipient of the PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC, Dr Zoe Cournia was selected for her outstanding contributions and impact on HPC in Europe on a global level. “Using the PRACE HPC resources and recent advances in computer-aided drug design allow us to develop drugs specifically designed for a given protein, shortening the time for development of new drugs,” says Dr Cournia. “I believe that our work is a good example of how computers help develop candidate drugs that have the potential to save millions of lives worldwide. I am honored to receive this prestigious award and hope that this serves as inspiration to other female researchers in the field.”
