Drug Discovery

The drug discovery laboratory conducts research on the edge of chemistry and biology using the latest techniques and developing new ones for the study of biological systems. We utilize computational molecular design, medicinal chemistry, and biological assays testing in many aspects of our research. We collaborate extensively with scientists in diverse disciplines both in academia and industry.
