Professor Jun Xu: Medicinal Chemistry Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine Informatics
5 May 2011
Co-presented with the Faculty of Phamacy
Presenter: Prof. Jun Xu, Sun Yat-Sen University, China
Thisseminar presents case studies on deducing novel Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) anti-influenza and anti-hyperlipedemia prescriptions from structure biology. The studies suggest that, by further investigating TCM theory and mining TCM databases, a better drug discovery paradigm may arise - one that can be beneficial to both TCM and modern medicine.
Professor Jun Xu, Professor of Med-chem & CADD, School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the director and founding professor of the research centre for drug discovery (RCDD) at Sun Yat-Sen University (SYSU) in Guangzhou, China. His main focus at SYSU has been to apply the principles of chemoinformatics to the design of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) remedies.
