Rob Rizzo works in Computational Structural Biology. His research group seeks to understand
the atomic basis for molecular recognition for specific biological systems involved
in human disease such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, and influenza with the ultimate goal of
developing new and improved drugs. Computational methods are used to model how molecules
interact at the atomic level with a given drug target. The resultant 3D structural
and energetic information is used to quantify and rationalize drug-binding for known
systems and to make new predictions.
