Docking Studies of SHP-2 Inhibitor Candidates

This work, carried out in collaboration with Steve Leonard’s Lab at IWU, is aimed at simulating and characterizing potential inhibitor molecules in order to prioritize them for synthesis in the laboratory.

Membrane Studies

This project focuses on the ripple phase that occurs in synthetic phospholipid bilayers. Besides its intrinsic interest, the phenomenon is a window into lipid-lipid interactions with implications for real cell membranes.
