Rajiah Aldrin Denny's research efforts focus on computational and cheminformatics aspects of drug discovery. During his time in Biogen-Idec, Wyeth, and currently Pfizer, he worked on diverse disease areas including inflammation, immunology, oncology, and protein misfolding. He has contributed to exploratory and late stage discovery projects using structure- and ligand-based drug design, virtual screening, and ADMET modeling. He was also involved in cheminformatics application development efforts. Denny obtained his Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India, in 1998 and received the Langmuir Best Thesis Award. His postdoctoral research focused on Raman spectroscopy, solvation dynamics, and electron transfer using statistical mechanics and MD/MC simulations at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India, and Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
