Bajorath on what gets his creative juices flowing: “I’m inspired by exploring new avenues in research. One of my premises is not to hold on to accomplishments but move on. Trying to develop new ideas going off the beaten path is a driver for me. In addition, working with graduate students and seeing how many of them really get into science is a joy.”
What his colleagues say: “Jürgen is a world leader in the development and application of cheminformatics and computational solutions to research problems in medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, and life sciences, and he has done pioneering work in big data analysis and chemistry.”—Veerabahu Shanmugasundaram, Pfizer
