Amiram Goldblum



Studied Chemistry and Physics followed by a PhD in Organic Chemistry with Rafael Mechoulam at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Went to Paris for Postdoctoral Studies on Quantum Biochemistry at the Institute for Physico-Chemical Biology with Alberte and Bernard Pullman, a second PostDoc on Quantitative Structure-Activity Relations at Pomona College California with Corwin Hansch, and a third PostDoc on Qunatum Mechanics of reaction pathways at Stanford University with Gilda Loew.

Currently head of the Molecular Modeling and Drug Design unit at the Institute for Drug Research of the  Hebrew University. Developed a prize winning computer algorithm (by the American Chemical Society) that has been applied to most of the Goldblum group studies in the last 10 years  - Structural Biology, Protein-ligand and Protein-Protein interactions , Molecular Design of small molecules, of peptides and of Proteins, and more recently, applied to Cheminformatics.

Amiram Goldblum is a board Member of The Lisa Meitner Minerva Center for Computational Quantum Chemistry and a member of the Sudarsky Center for Computational Biology, both at the Hebrew University.  Served as the Chairperson of the 1996 conference of The World Organization of Theoretically Oriented Chemists Conference, as well as being on the scientific advisory boards of European QSAR meetings in the last 10 years and as a judge for contests of the Emerging Technologies Symposia of the American Chemical Society, in addition to being on the editorial boards and a guest editor of several publications.
