Drug discovery


Ph.D. University of Oklahoma, 2013
Postdoctoral Associate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology 2014-2016


Research in the Awuah laboratory focuses on innovative drug discovery through computer-aided drug design, genetic editing, and rigorous chemical synthesis of organic and inorganic small molecule probes to interrogate human biology processes and disease states towards new therapeutics. We seek to evaluate efficacy of lead drug candidates in relevant disease models. Our laboratory is pivoted on three overarching themes involving, drug discovery, chemical biology, and chemical immunology.
