Alexis Manful

Biochemistry major Alexis Manful is working on an independent research project with Dr. Sara Narayan this fall. She is using molecular modeling to investigate the protein-ligand docking of anti-retroviral drug Abacavir.  This molecule known by its brand name, Ziagen, is prescribed to prevent HIV/AIDS, as it prevents viral replication. The best part of this type of research is the ability to conduct it anywhere!
