Yuri Pevzner, Ph.D.

Yuri is passionate about enabling drug discovery with computation and software engineering. Yuri’s background combines 20+ years of software engineering and IT experience with a strong scientific background. After having earned his Ph.D. from University of South Florida in the area of computational chemistry and structure-based drug design, Yuri has completed his post-doctoral training at the National Cancer Institute working on computational exploration of synthetically-accessible chemical space. In 2017, Yuri joined AbbVie where his primary responsibilities included working closely with early discovery, medicinal chemistry and structural biology to devise IT solutions that enable better decision making and increase discovery throughput. When not working, Yuri wishes he was working, but also enjoys playing sports, cooking, gardening and the outdoors.
