Dr. Katie Doud is a Visiting Assistant Professor who joined the Chemistry Department at John Carroll University in 2015. The unifying theme of Dr. Doud’s research focuses on using biophysical methods to better understand protein-small molecule interactions. The goal of this work is to develop chemical probes that can be used to better understand disease with an eye toward realizing potential therapeutics. There are two major projects underway: 1) Modulation of the innate immune response to bacterial and viral pathogens using small organic compounds and 2) Development of derivatives of the aspartate carbamoyltransferase inhibitor N-(phosphonacetyl)-L-aspartate (PALA).
