Dr. Whitney Craig
Lander University
Presentation: Evaluation of Small Molecules and Natural Products for Drug Design

Abstract:  Metalloproteins have a wide array of biological functions and activity in disease progression and bacterial growth. Many metalloproteins continue to be appealing targets for drug design. Though efforts have been made to design therapeutic agents, many have poor selectivity, off-target binding events, and high toxicity. This presentation will explore binding of small, synthesized molecules and molecules produced by a living organism as a basis for rational drug design potential for both mammalian cells and bacterial cells.

Speaker Bio:  Dr. Whitney Craig is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Lander University. She earned a BS from Shorter University and her PhD from Miami University. She was a postdoctoral researcher at UNC-Asheville before starting her career at Lander.
