About us

We are a computational chemistry/biology research group in the Department of BioMolecular Sciences at the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy. Our research interests are largely directed towards understanding structure-function relationship of biomolecules at the atomic level, the molecular mechanism of the dysfunctions of these biomolecules leading to diseases, and computer-aided drug discovery to treat these diseases. To open an intelligent and efficient route to illuminate the biological mechanisms of diseases in the era of big data, my overarching goal is to bridge the gap between two fast-growing fields in computational biology, i.e., computational biophysics and genome sequencing analysis.
