George Van Den Driessche

I completed my Bachelor's of Science at Aquinas College where I dual majored in chemistry and mathematics. After graduation I attended Illinois State University where I combined my passion for chemistry and mathematics by joining a computational research group under the mentorship of Dr. Jean Standard. My research at ISU employed density functional theory (DFT) to model the formation of donor-acceptor complexes. Then in 2015, after receiving my Master's in Science I moved to Raleigh, NC to attend North Carolina State University where I joined the lab of Dr. Denis Fourches. As a member of the Fourches Lab I am using a combination of Cheminformatics and Quantum based techniques to model and predict adverse drug reactions (ADRs) induced by the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) protein.
