Experimental Capabilities

In addition to computational modeling and design, MMBC offers the following.

  • Preparation of computationally designed protein drug candidates 
  • Protein engineering to prolong the biological half-lives of protein drugs
  • Development of stable cell lines for promising protein drug candidates
  • Large-scale protein expression in a bioreactor and purification using an FPLC 
  • Advice for further preclinical and clinical development through CROs


The Molecular Modeling and Biopharmaceutical Center seeks new opportunities to develop innovative research partnerships with UK investigators. For more information and to request services.

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
