Computational Drug Design
My reserach interest covers all spectrum of Molecular Modelling, Computational Chemistry, Cheminformatics, Bioinformatics, and Database management.
Some of the current research projects are shown below.
- LigFrag - a database of protein side chain/ligand-fragment interactions
in drug design
Established from 2010, this course is an in depth study of
modern drug design methods from bioinformatics to molecular modeling
and fragment based drug design. Sections on intellectual property
and marketing provide a solid background for anyone considering
a career in the pharmaceutical and health industries.
