Description:
Ewha Womans University (http://www.ewha.ac.kr/mbs/ewhaen/index.jsp) 
is one of the most prestigious universities in South Korea. Ewha has
continued to evolve throughout its more than 130-year history and now, 
it became the largest women's university in the world with 25,000 enrolled
students. The College of Pharmacy in Ewha is the oldest and largest school
of pharmacy in Korea with a history of more than seventy years of Pharmacy
education. 
Moreover, only the top 1% of excellent students in Korea enter the College
of Pharmacy, and our graduates now number over 10,000. 
In the laboratory of molecular modeling and drug design (Prof. Sun Choi; 
http://caddsc.ewha.ac.kr/), various technology and methodology of CADD, cheminformatics, 
computational medicinal chemistry and biomolecular simulations are studied. 

Using computational methods, we develop strategies for drug discovery
involving cancer, virus, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, etc. Adapting
to the target systems, various studies are in progress, including docking
and binding mode analysis, active site and pharmacophore analysis,
structure-activity relationships study and activity prediction, chemical
library and molecular design (target structure-/ligand-based), HTS data
analysis, hit/lead optimization, study of molecular interactions and
mechanisms, and big data and artificial intelligence (AI)-based drug
discovery. Based on the high-quality and extensive research outcomes, 
we are continuously publishing articles in world-renowned journals, such as
Journal of the American Chemical Society, Cell Metabolism, Angewandte
Chemie, Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, and Theranostics. Our laboratory was
selected as the National Leading Research Laboratory (NLRL) funded by the
Korean government, and has engaged in active research activities,leading the
Global AI Drug Discovery Center.
