    About the Speakers...


    Barry Bunin, PhD

    CEO, Collaborative Drug Discovery

    Barry Bunin founded CDD in 2004 to pioneer CDD Vault, a hosted research data management system. Prior to CDD, he was an Entrepreneur in Residence with Eli Lilly, as well as the founding CEO, President, & CSO of Libraria (now Eidogen-Sertanty). 

    On the scientific side, Dr. Bunin is an expert in cheminformatics and combinatorial chemistry, and has written two books in those fields. He is also on the patent of Kyprolis, a selective proteasome inhibitor for treating multiple myeloma.

    Dr. Bunin received his B.A. from Columbia University and his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, where he synthesized and tested the initial 1,4-benzodiazepine libraries with Professor Jonathan Ellman.


    Eric Martin, PhD

    Director, Computational Chemistry at Novartis

    Eric Martin has a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry from Yale University. He has worked in computational drug design and herbicide design for 40 years at Dow, DowElanco, Chiron and Novartis. He is currently developing novel methodologies for two areas of drug discovery: 1)Developing “Profile-QSAR”, a massively multitask machine learning method that builds experimental-quality virtual screening models for over 9000 IC50 assays, and 2) “rational oral bioavailability design” during lead optimization, by applying global sensitivity analysis to physiologically-based pharmacokinetics simulations. Eric was awarded the lifetime title of Novartis Leading Scientist for the former.
