My primary research interest are in the development and application of computational approaches to drug discovery, drug design and target prediction. I have pioneered new computational approaches to determine drug actions based on chemical networks (https://services.mbi.ucla.edu/CSNAP/) and applied this method to discover new drugs inhibiting cell divisions and cancers. My current research at the Altman's lab focuses on developing novel computational methods for predicting drug actions, interactions, side-effects and drug repurposing. By correlating low-level structural data with high-level functional biology and clinical outcomes, I will apply system-based approach to engineer safe and effective medicine for disease treatments.
