I am interested in mapping out the complex interactions between peptides, proteins, DNA, & lipids at the molecular level. I believe that through careful study, under realistic conditions, of the properties & behaviors of biologically active molecules, we will be able to discern the rules that govern recognition & interactions between groups of biological macromolecules in various environments. My research at URI has focused on the areas of mechanism-based drug design using solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS), combinatorics, phage displayed peptides, molecular dynamics simulations, capillary electrophoresis (CE), & cryo-transmission electron microscopy (TEM) imaging, as our expert tools to study the interactions between peptide drugs and their targets.


The Program

The Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program (INP) offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree, Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree, or a Certificate in the Neurosciences. The program provides broad instruction across several neuroscience disciplines and gives students an opportunity to focus on a specific area of specialization.
