Bioinformatics Bioinformatics

Our bioinformatics research program addresses the development of pathogen diagnostics for different platforms, comparative genomics, sequencing, host-pathogen interactions, and viral evolution.

Computational Chemistry Computational Chemistry

This research uses atomistic-based models of small molecules and macromolecules to address drug-protein interactions, protein-structure predictions, protein engineering, and chemical and biological processes at membranes.

Computational Drug Design Computational Drug Design

Our efforts include applied and methodological research in structure- and ligand-based drug design, emphasizing both efficacy and pharmacological optimization of lead compounds to facilitate go/no-go decisions.

Immunology & Vaccine Research Immunology & Vaccine Research

We focus on analysis and modeling approaches that combine immunology with pre-clinical and clinical vaccine studies to identify determinants of vaccine efficacy against military-relevant infectious diseases.

Musculoskeletal and Blast Injury Musculoskeletal and Blast Injury

Our research in this area focuses on characterizing the risks of stress-fracture injury, the mechanisms of traumatic brain injury from blasts, and the effectiveness of eyewear in a blast environment.

Network Science & Systems Biology Network Science & Systems Biology

This area focuses on both basic and applied research projects aimed at understanding and modeling protein-protein interactions, metabolic networks, blood coagulation, wound healing, and inflammation.

Physiological Data Modeling & Mining Physiological Data Modeling & Mining

Research in this area focuses on the development of individual-specific mathematical models and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms for preventing non-battle injuries and optimizing casualty care.

Systems Toxicology Systems Toxicology

Our research aims to understand, detect, and predict the adverse effects of drugs, chemicals, and toxicants on biological systems, using computational and experimental approaches.
