Computer-Aided Drug Discovery and Design
We are interested in developing and applying computational tools that leverage structural information for the discovery of compounds that have the potential of becoming therapeutics. Under the umbrella of the Experimental Therapeutics Institute (ETI) we work with many groups to identify new small-molecules that target disease-related proteins. Therapeutic areas of interest include cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and others. The computational work is closely tied to experimental validation in collaboration with biomedical research groups and medicinal chemistry.
