Biomedical Engineering

Researchers at Dalton are looking for more effective ways to deliver treatment for cystic fibrosis and other diseases. Drug molecules usually act by binding to specific target proteins. Like solving a jigsaw puzzle, researchers can find the best fit for those proteins by identifying complementary geometric and chemical traits.

Computer-aided drug design, modeling of membrane proteins and other technologies can speed the work of investigators and create more effective ways to deliver treatment for a number of diseases.
