"The strength of Nikki's research lies not only in the combination of computational and experimental methods, but also in her approach that will unravel details of the events that accompany PPAR  activation, thereby making the drug discovery process more rational," Bevan said.

"Nikki's successful NIH proposal builds upon ongoing collaborative research between Dr. Bevan and NIMML aimed at streamlining the drug and nutraceutical discovery process. In addition, Nikki's project leverages and extends the scope of studies conducted by the Center for Modeling Immunity to Enteric Pathogens. Specifically, this effort is in line with the goal of discovering novel broad-based immune therapeutics for gastrointestinal infectious diseases by creating computational models of the mucosal immune system and sets the stage for multi-scale modeling in drug discovery," Bassaganya-Riera said.
