Molecular Matchmaking for Drug Discovery

June 5, 2012

biomolecular machines manufacturing proteins Computational drug discovery allows researchers to target a small group of possible molecules for therapeutic use, saving significant time and money. In the February 2012 edition of the Journal of Structural Biology, University of Texas at Austin researcher Chandrajit Bajaj reported on advances in image reconstruction that allow his group to detect the secondary structures of proteins from single particle cryo-electron microscopy.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2016, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards. NSF also awards about $626 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
