Thomas Seidel studied Technical Chemistry at the Vienna University of Technology where he received a PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry in 2003. From 2004 until 2005 he worked as a postdoctoral research assistant in the group of Prof. Johann Gasteiger at the Computer Chemistry Center/University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. The main focus of his research was the development of methods and algorithms to assess the synthetic accessibility of compounds generated by de novo design. After his postdoctoral stay he returned to Vienna for a position at the company InteLigand GmbH where he developed cheminformatics software for pharmacophore modeling and virtual screening. Since 2014 Thomas Seidel is a senior PostDoc at the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry/University of Vienna where he leads the chemoinformatics research group.

The main topics of his research are the development and implementation of novel algorithms for pharmacophore-based drug development, the advancement of the pharmacophore concept and the application of molecular dynamics simulations and machine learning methods in the context of molecular design.
