University of California, Postdoctoral Fellow Thoracic Oncology Laboratory , USA
Shu Liu joined the Thoracic oncology lab in Oct., 2012 as a postdoctoral fellow. Her main research interest here is small molecule drug development. She works on several of exciting drug discovery projects using computational chemistry methods to rationally design, optimize properties of drug candidates and predict ADMET profiles. She also characterizes compounds to understand their activities both in vitro and in vivo. Liu has a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences from College of Pharmacy, University of South Carolina in 2012. She received her Ph.D training from her advisor Dr. Campbell McInness in the drug design and synthesis lab. Liu\s dissertation is entitled design of non-ATP competitive and cell cycle specific CDK inhibitors targeting cyclin binding groove. She also has a B.S. in biological sciences from University of Science and Technology of China in 2005. Her college research work was about transdermal drug delivery.
