Michael Keiser, PhD

Assistant Professor

Our group investigates how drugs affect entire networks of proteins in the body at once to achieve their therapeutic effects, via computational predictions paired with experimental testing.

Sheng Ding, PhD

Professor

My research focuses on discovering and characterizing novel small molecules that can control stem cell maintenance, activation, differentiation, and reprogramming in various tissue types.

Jason Gestwicki, PhD

Professor

My research group studies how molecular chaperones maintain protein homeostasis. This question is important because imbalances in protein homeostasis are linked to a number of incurable diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders. Molecular chaperones regulate all aspects of a protein’s...

Jim Wells, PhD

Professor

My research focuses on developing enabling technologies for protein engineering and drug discovery to understand biology and pave roads to therapeutics.

Brian Shoichet, PhD

Professor

Our lab develops new methods for drug discovery, adopting two strategies to do so. On the one hand, we reduce biology to its molecular components, and seek to change how these fit together using synthetic molecules we design. On the other hand, we investigate how the biological molecules operate...

Adam Renslo, PhD

Professor

My research group is engaged at the interface of chemistry and biology. As medicinal chemists, we design and synthesize small molecules that modulate disease pathology at the level of the enzyme, cell, and whole animal, with current projects in cancer, infectious disease, and neurodegeneration. As...

Michelle Arkin, PhD

Professor

My research focuses on the development of drug-like molecules that alter important biological processes. These molecules will help us understand human biology and may lead to the design of new drugs.
