Dr. Jerome Baudry obtained his Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics with the Highest Honors from the University of Paris, France (University Pierre and Marie Curie), He subsequently joined the group of Klaus Schulten at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a post-doc. After his post-doctoral work, Dr. Baudry worked in the pharmaceutical industry as a Research Scientist, and then accepted a Research Assistant Professor position in the School of Chemical Sciences at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Baudry joined the University of Tennessee, Knoxville as a tenure-track faculty in the Department of Biochemistry & Cell and Molecular Biology. Dr Baudry holds a Group Leader position in the UT/ORNL Center for Molecular Biophysics located on the ORNL campus, and a faculty position in the UT Institute of Biomedical Engineering. The Baudry laboratory develops and applies methods and protocols in computational molecular biophysics for structure-based molecular discovery. The lab works on several targets relevant to human and animal health as well as on targets of agrochemical interest. The theoretical approach is complemented by close collaborations with experimental groups. The Baudry lab is pursuing directed protein engineering projects to design biomolecules with novel and/or directed biological functions.
