As a liaison between the Small Molecule Screening Facility at UMMS and the UMass Amherst campus, I intend to identify venues for complementary and mutually beneficial collaborations and thoroughly assist in their implementation. Toward this goal, I plan to acquire and curate a 100,000-compound library that can be formatted for both drug discovery and drug development needs of UMass researchers. In addition, I am offering integrated cheminformatic and computational modeling services for the purpose of discovery and further elaboration of discovered chemotherapeutics. Specifically, I plan to assist researchers across campus with thorough analyses of HTS results and various associated computational needs, including cheminformatic, modeling, docking, and dynamic simulation methods.
