Computational Medicinal Chemistry & Drug Design
In this site there is information on some of my research interests and activities in Computational Chemistry and Structural Biochemistry.
My computer lab is located at the School of Pharmacy in Memorial University of Newfoundland.
The research in my lab is mainly focused on computational prediction and engineering of complex biological macromolecules and analysis of their dynamical mechanism of actions in atomic level.
In this approach, bioinformatics and experimental biochemical data are combined and the efforts are conducted to address fundamental problems in structural and functional biology. The outcomes are also applied to target-structure-based drug design, aiming to develop more potent novel therapeutic agents with fewer side effects.
My projects are interdisciplinary and at the interface of Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Biophysics and Computing Science. If you are interested in learning more about these, please contact me @:
