Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise:
Computer-aided Drug Design | Molecular Dynamics Simulation | Molecular Modeling

The long-term goal of my research program is to gain mechanic insights into the structure, dynamics and function of pharmacologically important biomolecules. The insights enable rational drug design using a hierarchical virtual screening protocol including docking, molecular dynamics simulation, and free energy perturbation methods. My current research aims to: 1) develop novel cancer drugs that target DNA/RNA-quadruples, transporter (ABCB1) and kinase (MLK); 2) develop novel analgesic and anti-drug-addiction agents that target G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR) (Dopamine, TAAR1, Opioid) membrane receptors; 3) develop novel anti-virus drugs against herpes virus entry (gD); 4) develop diabetes drug that simultaneously targets inflammation (PPAR).
