Cesar M CompadreUniversity of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
Compadre has extensive pharmaceutical research experience, on the development of bioactive compounds based on naturally occurring compounds, and on the use of molecular modeling in drug design and structure-activity studies. He has published over 80 papers and more than 70patents related to the development of bioactive compounds. He is also the developer of one FDA approved antimicrobial technology that is commercially used. He has a BSPharm degree, and obtained his Ph.D degree in medicinal chemistry and pharmacognosy, from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He conducted postdoctoral research on structure-activity relationships studies using molecular modeling at the University of Illinois working with Dr. John M. Pezzuto and at Pomona College working with Professor Corwin Hansch. Additionally, he had a sabbatical experience at NASA Ames Research Center in computer modeling. At the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences he established and directs the molecular modeling facility. He has extensive research collaborations with many scientists locally, nationally and internationally.
