Nicolas Moitessier


Nicolas Moitessier created a spin-off, Molecular Forecaster Inc., a company that offers highly specialized drug design and discovery computer programs that aim to make several aspects of drug discovery faster and easier.

The results of this research have the potential to impact Canadians by providing new tools for the prediction of biological processes and considerably minimizing the required synthetic efforts. This research would not be possible without Compute Canada infrastructure because, even though the current tools are predictive and efficient, new concepts and implementations that were not possible just a few years ago are now being considered and feasible. High-accuracy predictions and simulations require computational power that only Compute Canada can offer.
