Interesat in descoperirea medicamentelor, folosind informatica medicala, chimica si bioinformatica. Expert in informatica medicamentului, reprofilare de medicamente, si screening virtual. In prezent lucrez la prioritizarea de tinte pentru medicamente ( Vezi si versiunea in limba engleza.

flag Details:
Health informatics scientist with interests in knowledge management applied to lead and drug discovery, target and drug repurposing, translational informatics and health-record analytics. I contributed to conceptual developments for lead-likeness, systems chemical biology, and the identification of selective, potent compounds for the G-protein estrogen receptor, the formyl peptide receptors FPR1 and FPR2, the Rac1 and Cdc42 GTP-ases, and GLUT5, a fructose-only transporter. My work led to clinical trials for Raltegravir and Ketorolac, both evaluated as anti-cancer agents. I serve as PI for the NIH project "Illuminating the Druggable Genome Knowledge Management Center“ (see also
