Research Interests:

  • small-molecule drug discovery
  • computer-aided drug discovery

Companies are estimated to spend tens to hundreds of millions of US dollars to bring a new drug to market from initial discovery through clinical trials to approval. By building a new mode in the popular citizen science game Foldit, termed “Foldit Drug Design”, we hope to sample the vast chemical space, and utilize the computational power of citizen scientists to find promising small molecules for further analysis.  To introduce the new mode efforts include interface refactoring, new tool development, and new energy function.
