Developing next generation tools for drug discovery

Developing next generation tools for drug discovery

The Mobley Lab utilizes computational tools to help guide pharmaceutical drug discovery. Their research applies computational and theoretical methods to understand and predict fundamental biological processes, which will allow them to develop next generation tools to design new therapeutics.

Improving therapeutics: Small Scale, Big Advances

Improving therapeutics: Small Scale, Big Advances

Many clinical treatments lacking specificity & efficiency do not perform to expected standard causing adverse effects and reducing patient quality of life. The Kwon Lab aims to develop efficient, versatile, and safe therapeutics by employing nano- and micro-scale biomaterials. Their technologies allows for applications in degenerative & infectious diseases and cell therapy for cancer.
