đŸ’¡Chemistry | Data Science | Neuroimmunology

We are a vibrant group of chemists, immunologists, and data scientists focused on computation-guided drug design and discovery in cancer- and neuro-immunology! 

How do immune cells become dysfunctional in chronic inflammation? 

Focus on glial cell dysfunction in chronic inflammation to identify immune checkpoints. 

How do we modulate cellular function and micro-environment in health and diseases? 

Develop molecules to target specific cells, modify cells for enhancing, suppressing, modulating, imaging cellular microenvironments.

How can we automate drug discovery & development by incorporating artificial intelligence in analytical sciences?

Develop tools for characterization and assay automation. 

How can we improve mass spectrometry to better understand complex biological phenomena at high throughput?

Develop single-cell lipidomics and associated AI and automation platform for high-throughput data collection and analysis.
