Harris’s research and computational chemistry background to help
fuel ComputChem’s drug-design product development
December 16, 2021, Baltimore, MD – ComputChem, a technology company building next-generation platform solutions for in silico covalent drug design and lead optimization, today announced the hiring of Julie Harris, a physicist with experience in computational chemistry and drug design, as Manager of Product Development.
In her new role, Harris will work primarily to develop constant pH-based drug design tools and methods and related drug discovery methods.
Prior to joining the ComputChem team, Harris worked as Lead Developer of continuous constant pH molecular dynamics (CpHMD) in the Amber molecular dynamics package as a Postdoctoral Fellow with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.
Harris, who holds a PhD in Physics from Florida State University, also worked in postdoctoral research fellowships at Temple University and the University of Texas Medical Branch.
Most recently, Harris worked as a principal engineer with Mapware where she led the development of Mapware’s photogrammetry engine for creating 3D models from drone images.
“Julie brings a perfect blend of research, product development and commercialization to our growing team,” said Ken Malone, an Executive Officer with ComputChem. “For our company mission, the biggest thing is Julie is an experienced computational scientist interested in solving challenging scientific problems. We’re delighted to have her on our team.”
