What we're about

Welcome to this space dedicated to the M2D2 Talks co-organized by Valence Discovery and Mila - Quebec AI Institute.

From applied research papers to open source projects, we’re hoping to use these talks to help demystify AI for drug discovery and make the field more accessible for newcomers. M2D2 will bring our vibrant AI & drug discovery communities together and spark new perspectives, provoke discussions, and offer a safe space to share new ideas.

A wide range of drug discovery related topics will be covered reflecting the vibrant diversity of tools and methodologies in the community:

  • Applications of ML in computational molecular design
  • Representation learning for small- and macromolecules
  • Prediction of molecular properties and bioactivities
  • ML for quantum chemistry and molecular dynamics
  • Generative models for de novo molecular design
  • Multiparameter optimization and compound selection
  • Interpretable and explainable activity models
