Name McCammon, J. Andrew
Location University of California, San Diego
Primary Field Biophysics and Computational Biology
Secondary Field Chemistry
 Election Citation
McCammon was an originator of molecular dynamics simulations of biomolecules. He subsequently invented methods for computing free energy changes, diffusion-controlled reaction rates, and conformational changes on millisecond time scales. His contributions to drug discovery recently included the basis of Merck's raltegravir, first in a new class of drugs for HIV/AIDS.
 Research Interests
