M.J. Hubbard (Biography
M.J. Hubbard

Rod Hubbard has been an academic at the University of York, UK for over 35 years where his research interests continue in the development and application of methods for the study and exploitation of protein structure. In the 1980s and early 1990s he developed molecular graphics and modelling methods commercialised by MSI / Accelrys. During the 1990s he helped to build and directed the York Structural Biology Laboratory, determining the structure of many important classes of proteins. During this time he developed interests in the study of protein- ligand interactions and the application of experimental and computational methods which included working with various pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. He helped to establish the drug discovery company now known as Vernalis (R&D) and since 2001 has spent varying amounts of his time with Vernalis, establishing a leading profile in fragment based drug discovery. Currently he splits his time between York (as Professor of Chemistry) and Vernalis and in addition is a member of various boards for the Research Counclis and consults for pharmaceutical companies around the world.
