His research focus is to apply kinetic and biophysical techniques to understand enzyme structure and function, as well as applying High-Throughput screening approaches to discover and develop inhibitors for enzyme targets relevant to human disease.
The major focus of Dr. Hurley’s research lab is to understand, at the molecular level, the processes involved in the recognition and binding of molecules that are directed to the active sites of enzymes.
