Amjad Farooq, Ph.D.
- Associate Professor
- Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
Dr. Farooq's laboratory applies a wide variety of biophysical methods to study the basic mechanisms driving protein-ligand interactions in the context of cellular processes pertinent to human health and disease. Importantly, in the wake of ever rising costs coupled with lengthy clinical trials associated with de novo drug design, his research efforts are also directed toward repurposing old or existing drugs for new indications for which no other therapeutic alternatives are available on the basis of structure-based rational approach.
