Cesar M Compadre
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
Dr. Compadre has extensive research experience, on the development of bioactive compounds based on naturally occurring compounds, and on the use of molecular modeling in drug design and structure-activity studies. He has published over 100 papers and over 70 patents related to the development of bioactive compounds, and one FDA approved antimicrobial technology. Dr. Compadre has a BSPharm degree, and obtained his Ph.D degree in medicinal chemistry and pharmacognosy, from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He conducted postdoctoral research on structure-activity relationships studies using molecular modeling at the University of Illinois and at Pomona College working with Professor Corwin Hansch. Additionally, he had a sabbatical experience at NASA Ames Research Center in computer modeling. At the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, he established and directs the molecular modeling facility. He has extensive research collaborations with many scientists locally, nationally and internationally.
