Jeremy Smith, Governor’s Chair for Molecular Biophysics, has discovered a chemical compound that could lower sugar levels as effectively as the diabetes drug metformin but with a lower dose.
The Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons in attacks on its own people is raising questions in the research community about the need to counteract such activity, according to two experts at the University of Tennessee. The Knoxville News Sentinel recently interviewed Jeremy Smith, a governor’s chair researcher at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory
A joint UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory research project involving supercomputer simulations has played a key role in discovering a new class of drug candidates that hold promise to combat antibiotic resistance.
A quicker and cheaper technique to scan molecular databases developed by UT researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) could put scientists on the fast track to developing new drug treatments. A team led by Jerome Baudry of the UT-ORNL Center for Molecular Biophysics adapted a widely used existing software to
