Molecular modeler, Discovery Research Services, Charles River

Michael joined the Early Discovery Team at Charles River in 2015.  He previously worked at Imperial College London for two years. He obtained his PhD in 2012 from the University of Southampton, focusing on the application and development of novel methods for predicting the location of small molecules within protein binding sites. He has an interest in the application of cutting-edge computational techniques in drug design, and his work has been published in eight peer-reviewed journals.

Liquid Assets

With the growing number of citations and papers in the chemical literature, it's not an understatement to say that the role of water molecules in drug design is a hot topic. Conceptually, it's easy to see why.
