Published on April 19, 2013

This video outlines the role of computational simulations in the design of carbohydrate-based therapeutic agents, such as antibacterial vaccines and antiviral drugs.

Woods Group | National University of Ireland, Galway

Dr Rob Woods received his Ph.D. in 1990 in computational and synthetic carbohydrate chemistry from Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada. From 1990-1994 he held postdoctoral positions at Oxford University, and at the National Research Council of Canada. He joined the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center at the University of Georgia in January 1995. Dr Woods is a senior investigator on several NIH grants. In 2007 he founded a start-up company (Glycosensors and Diagnostics, LLC) to commercialize aspects of his academic research.

Dr Jenifer Hendel is a postdoctoral associate in the Woods group, with a PhD from the University of Guelph in Canada. She has expertise in carbohydrate synthesis.

Hannah Smith is a postgraduate student in the Woods group at the National University of Ireland at Galway, with a research focus on computational simulations of carbohydrates.
