Introduction of the Speaker:
Hong Guo obtained his Ph.D. degree at Harvard University in 1991 under the supervision of Prof. Martin Karplus (Nobel Prize Winer). From 1991--1993, he was an International NSERC postdoctoral fellow at University of Waterloo, and from 1993--1997, he was a postdoctoral fellow/research associate at University of Montreal and CERCA. He moved back to Harvard to work with Prof. Karplus as well as Prof. William Lipscomb (also a Nobel Prize Winer) as a scientist in 1998 and started at the University of Tennessee Knoxville (UTK) in 2002 where he is currently a professor at Department of Biochemistry & Cellular and Molecular Biology. He is also a senior member at Center for Molecular Biophysics, UTK/Oak Ridge National Lab. His research interests include the study of enzymes and enzyme’s specificity based on QM/MM MD simulations and protein structure prediction and application and development of computational approaches for big data analysis.
