Laurent HOFFER, Ph.D
Research Scientist - Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR)

Bio: Laurent HOFFER, Ph.D. is a Research Scientist at the Drug Discovery department of the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR). His main focus has been computer-aided development of molecular probes and the development of potent inhibitors targeting diverse proteins, including protein kinases and WDR-domain containing proteins. Dr. Hoffer received his Ph.D. in chemoinformatics in 2013, from the University of Strasbourg (Pr Varnek Lab) in collaboration with a small company. His doctorate work primarily focused on the molecular docking of small organic compounds and their optimization using in silico approaches. He also worked at the Cancer Research Centre of Marseille (CRCM, France) in the Morelli team, leading the development and validation of molecular modeling methods (DOTS & CovaDOTS) for structure-guided optimization of compounds.
