University of California, USA


Dr Luo completed his doctorate in physical chemistry with a focus on theoretical and computational analysis of biomolecular systems at University of Maryland at College Park in 1998. After a postdoctoral training at the University of California, San Francisco, he joined the faculty of Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at the University of California, Irvine in 2001. Dr. Luo is a principle developer of AMBER, one of the widely used molecular modeling programs in computational biochemistry. The major efforts of his team are in the development of new continuum solvation methods, in the maintenance of the PBSA program and related modules for continuum solvation modeling in AMBER, and applications of the computational methods in interesting biomolecular systems. Dr. Luo is a well-cited scholar with an H index of 28.
