Computational and systems approaches to early stage drug discovery
  • Computational methods can potentially improve target identification and validation at the earliest possible stage of drug development by providing a better understanding of the biology of the target network. Such a knowledge should also lead to new therapeutic strategies based on molecular mechanisms.

Discovery of drug targets

  • Our goal is to discover novel drug targets by utilizing cutting-edge techniques in bioinformatics and computational biology.

New therapeutic strategies based on molecular mechanisms

  • Our research is aimed at accelerating drug discovery by computational approaches towards a systems-level understanding of biological molecules, their reactions and diseases. We have successfully identified and designed compounds with physiological activities based solely on in silico prediction. Also we are developing a range of computational biology techniques, utilizing information about protein sequence, structure and interaction.
