Prof David Baker
University of Washington, Seattle
Professor Baker is a leading international expert in the computational modelling of peptide and protein structure and has made major contributions to the field of protein structure prediction of unknown peptides and proteins. Professor Baker serves as Professor of Biochemistry at University of Washington, Seattle, WA. His ability to design selective peptide libraries de novo interfaces seamlessly with CIPPS’ ability to synthesis, modify and characterise these libraries, and thus lead to the rapid access to designer peptides with tuned and desirable properties. Professor Baker has developed the Rosetta program, a software for protein folding prediction which has been licensed commercially to 27 companies, including J&J, Pfizer, Merck, and Monsanto.
