Research: Computer model of key protein helps predict how cancer drugs will work

Drugs important in the battle against cancer behaved according to predictions when tested in a computer-generated model of P-glycoprotein, one of the cell’s key molecular pumps. The new model allows researchers to dock nearly any drug in the P-gp protein and … Continue reading

Research Spotlight: Supercomputing and the fight against cancer

SMU biologists Pia Vogel and John Wise are using the computational power of the University’s high-performance supercomputer to screen millions of drug compounds, in search of one that will aid in the fight against recurring cancer. Both teach in SMU’s Department of Biological Sciences: Vogel is … Continue reading
