Ajay Jain, PhD

Professor Emeritus

Following a long period of applied research in defense applications and in speech understanding, Prof. Jain began a research career exclusively focused on issues in computational chemistry and computational biology. He has done foundational work in computer-aided drug design, and currently develops models for multitudes of human targets in order to help guide the design and selection of compounds during preclinical research. The Jain lab has active collaborations with both academic and industry partners; and are particularly interested in applications involving cancer.

Research Overview:

Predictive computational modeling focused on algorithmic approaches for drug discovery
The Jain lab focuses on computational chemistry and computational biology. The primary research areas are in structure-based drug discovery, rational approaches for predictive pharmacology, and applications involved in cancer.
