Jeremie Vendome


Senior Computational Scientist

Jeremie Vendome is a visiting research scientist in the lab of Barry Honig. He established a computer aided drug design (CADD) collaborative platform integrated with the Columbia Genome Center, and developed translational research collaborations with groups of clinicians, medicinal chemists, and structural biologists at the Columbia Medical Center. Currently, Jeremie also works as a principal scientist at Schrödinger, a leading computational chemistry company, where he is involved in scientific interactions with various Pharmaceutical companies as well as in drug discovery projects.

Jeremie completed his PhD in Computational Chemistry and Molecular Modeling in 2005 at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan, in Paris. While completing his doctoral study, from 2001 to 2006, he also worked for a start-up biopharmaceutical company where he used CADD methods to help develop new tyrosine kinase inhibitors.   

In 2006, Jeremie joined Barry Honig’s lab at Columbia University as a postdoctoral research scientist where he conducted several research projects within multidisciplinary teams focused on protein design, protein binding specificity, and cell-cell adhesion. In 2012, Jeremie explored a new direction and acquired business skills as he worked as a business management consultant with the Boston Consulting Group. In 2014, he returned to Columbia to start the CADD platform.
