FACILITY MANAGEMENT / EXPERTISE:

Structural Function to Drug Discovery

image002Our research will devote to facilitate technology for probing hot-area that link to specific function in biomolecular recognition and biomolecule-compound interactions, and to devise strategies for structure-based drug discovery as an integral part of the AS-GRC chemical biology research. The major duty, therefore, is to maintain an up-to-date in silico drug discovery platform and to implement new selection methods to assist research PIs in defining features of research targets for drug discovery. Computational approach will be using local surface searching, docking, and fragment-based filling methods, for starting template generation as well as for lead optimization.

研究興趣在致力於開發探測包括:蛋白質、DNA和RNA等生物分子間相互識別,以及生物分子與藥物間相互作用的技術,用以增進發現生物分子連絡特定功能的結構上熱區,結合使用結構為基礎的藥物設計策略,作為中心進行生物化學研究的整合技術。因此主要任務為維繫藥物研發技術平臺,以提供研究人員確定其標的物作為藥物設計目標的特徵。計算方法結合區域性的表面搜查,空間對接,片段底模充填法等技巧,以產生起始模板的結構資訊,以及進行先導藥物最佳化設計。
