Witold Witkowski Ph.D.

I enjoy long random walks down an energy landscape, and of course jumping in and out of local minima. I trend to find the least squares path to the goal, but sometimes get tied up talking to a lost traveling salesman.

I currently am working to design and implement algorithms that help develop exciting new ways to target cancer stem cells. Using a combination of computational and structural biological methods, I can search DNA and protein space for novel answers at Boston Biomedical Inc. in Cambridge MA.

My doctoral research focused on allosteric and direct control by small drug-like molecules of the apoptotic protein caspase-7 through a multidiscipline approach which spans biochemistry, molecular biology, and computer science. The goal of this research is to develop new methods for controlling caspase-7 that can be directly applied to clinical and pharmaceutical research.
