Dr Jonathan Davis, Principal Scientist, Molecular Structure and Design, Bristol Myers Squibb

Jonathan Davis received his Ph.D. from UC San Francisco, followed by a post-doc at Harvard Medical School in the labs of Jack Szostak and Gerhard Wagner. He then joined EMD Serono in Billerica, MA, where he invented a platform technology for generating heterodimeric Fcs and developed a novel scaffold based on an artificially-designed protein. He has extensive experience in selection technologies, library design, in silico modeling, and therapeutic discovery. In 2008 he moved to Bristol-Myers Squibb, where he is a Principal Scientists in Molecular Structure and Design, applying his skills to a wide range of challenges in protein and peptide engineering.

Information content and molecular complexity: how important are the size and design of libraries?

  • Selections for HIV-1 entry inhibitors used a variety of libraries
  • We analyzed the winning sequences, to determine how the library design may have dictated their emergence
  • The role of library design and library size will be examined
  • Results may lead to a deeper understanding of how to set up successful selections
