Shoshana Wodak is a computational biologist and an organizational leader in the field of protein-protein docking.[1] Wodak was one of the first people to dock proteins together using a computer program.[2][3]

She was elected an ISCB Fellow by the International Society for Computational Biology in 2016[4] and is one of the ISCB founders.[5] She helped organize the Critical Assessment of Prediction of Interactions, for which she has served on the Management Group since the founding in 2002.[6][7]
