Joseph Audie, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Biochemistry
Description of Research Interests
My scientific research interests and activities are primarily focused on (1) developing a theoretical understanding of protein-protein and protein-peptide recognition (2) developing computational methods to predict and explain protein-protein and protein-peptide interactions and (3) applying computational methods to identify and optimize peptide-based and peptide-derived drug leads.
Additionally, I am interested in exploring and understanding the relationship between modern empirical science and the philosophy of Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas.
