Structure Base Drug Design

Schrodinger

     The Structure Based Drug Design SBDD, started in November 2014, arose from the need of structural biology for many of our translational projects, that was beyond formally funded projects. The expertise of senior structural biologist / biophysicist Dr. Celia Schiffer, Director of the UMMS Institute of Drug Resistance and Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology initiated this core. This core assists researchers with structural characterizations, including molecular modeling, small molecule docking and inhibitor design (using the Schrodinger structure based drug design suite), crystallographic studies, organic synthesis and characterization, structure activity relationship (SAR) and chemistry support. This core interfaces with the x-ray crystallography core, the small molecule screening core, cryo-EM and other screening programs to assist with lead optimization.

Scientific Visualization and Illustration Services

The scientific visualization and illustration service is provided with the aim to help the scientific community in delivering complex research through engaging visuals while reaching a more extensive audience.  

Using a combination of PhD-level scientific knowledge with artistic and design skills, we create scientific visuals that help researchers convey cellular processes,  showcase novel protein, and molecular structures, and create covers to highlight research from a wide range of scientific fields.
