A Quantum Physics Search for Liver-Stage Antimalarials

The project is a collaboration with Dr. David Sullivan of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and sponsored by the Grand Challenges in Global Health initiative of the Gates Foundation.

Project Idea:

Apply an innovative in silico quantum physics approach, successfully used for discovery of novel compounds with blood stage antimalarial activity, to the liver stage for identification of new classes of therapeutic molecules amongst existing publicly available commercial drug and compound databases.
