Atomistic molecular dynamics simulations of P-glycoprotein


My project focuses on P-glycoprotein, the main cause in multi-drug resistance in cancer and efflux mechanism for many clinically important substrates, using molecular simulation methodologies to research the aspects of CNS-type drug interactions with P-glycoprotein and lipid bilayer. Investigation of how inhibitors and substrates are accessing P-glycoprotein can be of particular pharmaceutical importance, as it could help to understand why a specific drug will be effluxed by P-gp or transported over blood-brain-barrier. The research is supervised by Dr Phillip Biggin.

This project is funded by NC3Rs (National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research).
