The ChemDraw Wizards Challenge


PerkinElmer is known almost as much for our hands-on expertise in research and development as we are for our diverse product line up.

So, of course, the company has a team of Ph.D.s who know ChemDraw like you know chemistry. Meet them and then take the Challenge.

Here are just a few of those PerkinElmer experts – The ChemDraw Wizards:

Pierre Morieux, Ph.D.

ChemDraw, Global Marketing Manager

Pierre has a unique position as both the ChemDraw product manager working with the PerkinElmer product development team and as the global marketing lead. His doctorate is from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Jinsoo Kim, Ph.D.

Field Application Scientist

Jinsoo is a man of many products. He is a ChemDraw Wizard as well as a Signals Notebook and TIBCO Spotfire® guru. He has also worked at pharmaceutical and biotech companies on ocular and oncology R&D. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of California in Organic Chemistry.

Paul-SteffEn Kuhn, Ph.D.

Field Application Scientist

Based in Germany, Paul covers Europe whenever ChemDraw wizarding is required there. His doctorate is in the field of bioinorganic and medicinal chemistry and drug development under the supervision of Prof. Bernhard Keppler, Institut of Inorganic Chemistry, University of Vienna.


Share your challenge today!

The ChemDraw Wizards love a challenge! Plus, they love to help customers and prospects solve the hardest chemistry communications problems you face. This passion resulted in “The ChemDraw Wizards Challenge.” It’s easy to participate and you might win a cool ChemDraw gift.

It’s simple to participate:

  • Just send us your toughest chemical drawing/publishing challenge (It doesn't have to be drawn in ChemDraw; it can be a challenge with any drawing solution). Tell us who you are, how long it took to create your drawing, your biggest frustration in doing so, and if we can showcase your work on social media.
  • The Wizards will take a look, select a drawing and will show how it would be drawn in ChemDraw, and how long it took to create it. The Wizards will then post the results to The Showcase section of this site.
  • Once per month, the Wizards will share a few of the toughest submissions with the whole ChemDraw community. If you want to remain anonymous, you can. If you’d like to participate personally in the session, we’d love to have you.

The submissions selected for the Wizard Challenge will be featured on
The Showcase, and each chemist will receive his or her own supply of ChemDraw tattoos.

This section is all YOU. All the drawings here are from the ChemDraw Community and represent your biggest challenges.

The Wizards love to hit the road and bring ChemDraw to The People virtually. When they do, the love flows.
ChemDraw Connect is a demonstration/workshop for groups of 25 or more at your company
or university presented by one of the Wizards, in-person or virtually.

Here are few quotes from a tiny percentage of the hundreds of scientists who have participated in ChemDraw Connect:

Very good use of my time; I'm a long-time user and I learned many new features.

Chemist, Top 5 Pharma Company

I honestly had no idea about most of the shortcuts that were presented. This will definitely save me time and is one of the more useful presentations I've been a part of.

R&D Scientist, Large Pharma Company

The variability offered
by generic structure expansion as well as the hotkeys for creating reactions arrows+product are the best!

Graduate student, University in the US


Whether you’re an experienced chemist or an aspiring one, ChemDraw helps you find
your way around organic chemistry without having to master drawing.
