Drug discovery is a highly interdisciplinary process and involves a wide range of scientific disciplines, including chemistry, biology, and pharmacology. Our research focuses on structure-based and computer-aided drug design, fragment-based drug screen, hit-to-lead medicinal chemistry optimization, proteomics-based target identification, development of antibody-drug conjugates, and efficacy evaluation in cell culture and in animal models. BCM resources that support this research include the Center for Drug Discovery, the NMR and Drug Metabolism Core and the Mass Spectrometry Proteomics Core.
