Research synopsis: 

My research interests include computer-aided rational drug design of small molecule-based peptide mimetics technology. I manage a group of scientists working to identify novel drug candidates for cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. By leveraging my proprietary web-based laboratory information tracking system (Calentrack™), I have successfully implemented an aggressive expansion of compound collection for drug development.
