Serdar Durdagi has interdisciplinary research that focuses on protein modeling and dynamics, investigation of molecular mechanisms of protein/drug and protein/protein interactions, and optimizations protocols for rational drug design. For this aim, together with applications of molecular modeling tools such as homology modeling, 3D-QSAR (quantitative structure-activity relationships), molecular docking, molecular dynamics simulations, loop modeling, de novo drug design, ADME/Tox, he is also developing programming codes for several biological problems. Currently, he works as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Biocomplexity and Informatics (IBI) of the University of Calgary. He received a Ph.D. degree from the Free University of Berlin (computational biology/medicinal chemistry), Germany (2009).
