An important challenge in modern medicinal chemistry is to develop and utilize various computational approaches to speed up drug discovery process. Prof. Hou's group primarily focuses on the development and application of state-of-art computational and theoretical techniques to investigate the structures, functions, and dynamics of important drug targets and design potential new drugs using computational approaches and chemical/biological experiments. The research directions in Prof. Hou's group are summaried into the following parts:
(1) Development of structure-based virtual screening (SBVS) methodologies;
(2) Predictions of ADMET and drug-likeness;
(3) Discovery and design of small molecular inhibitors of important protein targets;
(4) Multiscale simulations of target-ligand recognition.
The positions of undergraduates, graduates and postdoctors are usually available. If you are interested in Prof. Hou's group, please directly contact by mail or email with Prof. Tingjun Hou.
