Grace Hopper Annual Conference Schedule

SPEAKER LIST

Shipra Malhotra

of University of Kansas

Shipra Malhotra is a Ph.D. student in the center of Computational Biology at University of Kansas. She is particularly interested in bioinformatics and computational drug design. She works in developing structure-based approaches for modulating protein function using small-molecules. She has developed a tool that can predict whether a ligand will preserve its binding pose after med chem optimization. Recently, she is working on establishing allostery as a method to modulate protein-protein interactions via small molecules. With success of these projects she hopes to identify novel inhibitors of protein interactions involving a number of well-validated cancer targets.
