    VICB Seminar: Derek Wilson, York University, Accelerated Drug Development in Cancer and Neurodegenerative Disease

    The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Dr. Derek Wilson, York University: "Targeting Conformational Disorder: Accelerated Drug Development in Cancer and Neurodegenerative Disease"

    Key Lecture Points:

    - We develop and apply rapid (millisecond) H/D exchange to explore the molecular origins of neurodegenerative disease and cancer
    - We have defined new molecular processes associated with protein misfolding in Alzheimer's, catalysis in antibiotic resistance and target engagement in mAb protein therapeutics
    - We translate our fundamental discoveries and novel methods to 'real world' drug development through collaboration with industrial partners in vaccine development, anti-amyloid drug development and cancer
