Winner of Scientific Challenge Fall 2020: FtsZ Inhibitors

September 20, 2021 15:16

We congratulate Benjamin Strickland from the Drew University to winning the Scientific Challenge Fall 2020!
In his project he aims to discover novel antibacterial scaffolds and leads for the bacterial cellular division protein filamenting temperature-sensitive mutant Z (FtsZ). The synergistic combination of SeeSAR andĀ infiniSeeĀ during his evolutionary virtual high throughput screening methodology led to the discovery of three promising molecular entities as antibacterial inhibitors.
