PHT180 Research Vitals with Emiliano Brini
Join us for a 15-20 minute presentation followed by discussion/Q&A with Emiliano Brini, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, regarding the development of physics-based computational tools for the next-gen of drug discovery.
Abstract: We need a new class of drugs to cure cancer and have more effective antiviral and antibiotic therapies. We must move from the current paradigm of drugs targeting single proteins to drugs that target the interaction between proteins. Only a principled approach grounded in physics can deliver the computational tools currently missing to rationally design this new revolutionary class of drugs. Here we propose to leverage our experience in using and developing physics-based simulations to design the missing tools that will enable the future of drug design.
