Computer Simulation of Biomolecular Recognition Processes and Drug Design

Molecular recognition plays a critical role in many biological processes including cellular signaling, homeostasis and enzyme catalysis. Development of an accurate and reliable computational model can play a critical role in establishing the exact mechanism of action behind their biological functions. Insight gained can also provide the molecular basis for rational protein engineering and drug design. This group’s primary objective is to develop consistent and predictive computational models that can be used for drug discovery and to advance human health.
