Dr Patel has joined Emory Faculty as a Senior Associate within the Laboratory of Biochemical and Pharmacology (LOBP) in December 2020. Dr. Patel is a molecular modeler and uses various molecular modeling approaches in computational drug discovery such as virtual screening, molecular docking, pharmacophore mapping, structure-based drug design and binding affinity prediction of small molecules. He also has expertise in protein structure analysis, homology modeling and protein-protein interactions, prediction of drug resistance mutations. He has experience in ADME and toxicity prediction of drug-like molecules. He performs molecular dynamic simulations with enhanced sampling techniques, including umbrellas sampling, metadynamics and ABF simulations to calculate free energy profiles of the drug like molecules.
