Bio: My primary research interest is in medicinal chemistry and centers on the biotransformation of compounds that takes place within the human body. My current research with Dr. Brown focuses on the metabolism of small molecules that interact with nicotinic receptors in the brain. I am particularly interested in using molecular modeling to develop new and effective therapeutics.
