Message from the Director
Robert Vince, PhD
The Center for Drug Design combines the best of academic tradition along with an expectation of innovation and independence, and provides significant value for our academic and research community.
Dale Barnard, PhD
Institute for Antiviral Research
Utah State University
Date: February 18, 2015
Time: 11:15 - 12:15 AM
Venue: 1-451 Moos
Dr. Barnard's research interests are in the elucidation of the biochemical cytotoxicity and mechanisms of antiviral action of new antiviral agents. A major thrust of his research is to pinpoint a viral enzyme which could be used as a target for developing selective and specific antiviral drugs. He has been instrumental in studying methods by which mink aleutian virus disease can be treated.
Spotlight on Research
A faster acting and safer than existing options, an antidote for cyanide poisoning that works prophylactically to prevent or limit toxicity associated from exposure to cyanide has been developed.
