Helen is interested in applying computational methods to problems within pharmacology. After gaining an MPharm and qualifying as a Pharmacist, she consolidated her knowledge of in-silico drug design during an MSci in computing science (including a bioinformatics research placement at the Earlham Institute) at the University of East Anglia. Funded by the EPSRC and joint between the departments of chemistry and computer science, her research sits at the interface of biochemistry, molecular simulation, and human-computer interaction. She is investigating how the power of interactive virtual reality frameworks developed within the group may harnessed to solve problems in pharmacology.
