The Arnold Group
The Arnold Group was established by Prof. Alexander (Leggy) Arnold and is an academic research laboratory in field of chemical biology working in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the Milwaukee Institute for Drug Discovery at the University of Wisconsin -Milwaukee.
The Arnold Group's research is focused on two primary targets: 1) the vitamin D receptor and 2) the GABA (A) receptors.
The Group's approach is to develop small molecules that can function as molecular probes in complex biological systems and new drug candidates for diseases mediated by the two primary targets mentioned above.
The Arnold Group is combining many areas of science including medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, (bio)analytical chemistry, high throughput screening, assay development, virtual screening, molecular docking and pharmacological profiling.
