Invited Talk Title: Multi-Scale Molecular Modeling Approaches for Drug Designing Studies
In this talk, successful examples of multi-scale molecular modeling approaches from our Laboratory (Computational Biology and Molecular Simulations Lab) for drug designing studies will be covered.
Dr. Durdagi applies computational chemistry methods to biological systems. His inter-disciplinary research focuses on protein engineering and analyses of their structural/functional dynamics, ligand- and structure-based drug design, high throughput virtual screening, investigation of molecular mechanisms of protein/drug, protein/protein and protein/DNA interactions and optimizations protocols for rational drug design. He also develops programing codes for several biological problems.
Prof. Durdagi published one book on computer-aided drug design in 2010 (“Recent Advances in Computational Drug Design Studies: The Application of In Silico Methodologies for Bioactive Cannabinoid and Fullerene Derivatives” by VDM-Verlag). Prof. Durdagi is the author/co-author of seven book chapters (such as “Medicinal Chemistry Research Progress”, published by Nova Science and “Highlights in Computational Chemistry II” published by Springer) and more than 90 research articles in top peer-reviewed medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry, quantum chemistry, bioinformatics, structural biology, bioorganic chemistry, biophysics and computational biology journals (i.e. Journal of Medicinal Chemistry (ACS); Scientific Reports (Nature); Structure; ACS Chemical Neuroscience, Biophysical Journal.; Journal of Biological Chemistry, etc.) with h-index of 22. (Dr. Durdagi’s research articles are cited by more than
Prof. Durdagi received many prestigious national and international awards including The
Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey-TUBITAK’s Incentive Award in
Healthy Sciences (2016); The scientist of the most publication of 2016 award from Bahcesehir University (2016); BAU Contribution to Science Award (2016); Science Academy’s Young Scientist Award -BAGEP (2014).
