Welcome to the Laboratory of Sivanesan Dakshanamurthy, located at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of the Georgetown University Medical Center.
Our research concerns Big Data analytics, High-throughput chemo- and clinical informatics, Systems Engineering, Systems Networks & Pharmacology, Big Database development, Chemicals and Materials simulations, drug-repurposing, drug-protein interactions, molecular and nano-technology simulations.
Many of these research interests include the design of new chemicals, measuring or calculating the activity, functions, and toxicity of chemicals and drugs in-silico and in biological media. Applications include pharmaceuticals, and industrial materials.
Lab members have recently published in:
- Concurrency and Computation
- Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology
- J. Immunology
