Brian Shoichet (UCSF)

Brian Shoichet is Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at UCSF. His lab seeks to discover chemical reagents that can illuminate biological problems by exploiting protein structures to predict new reagents and therapeutic leads (structure-based ligand discovery). A focus of his research is the discovery of reagents to modulate G-Protein Coupled Receptors (GPCRs).
