Dr. Markus Lill is an assistant professor of medicinal chemistry and molecular pharmacology at the School of Pharmacy, Purdue University. His research interest is the development of computational methods for drug discovery and environmental toxicology. In his current research, he focuses on protein flexibility upon ligand binding and the reliable prediction of binding affinities. The developed tools are utilized for the design of drugs as well as for predicting the toxic potential of drugs and environmental chemicals mediated by nuclear receptors and cytochrome P450 enzymes. Dr. Lill received his Diploma in Physics from the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany and his Ph.D. from the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, Frankfurt, Germany. He completed two years of postdoctoral training at the Biographics Laboratory 3R in Basel, Switzerland, before being promoted to a project leader in ADMET research. In parallel, he was a reader at the Pharmacenter of the University of Basel, completing his Habilitation in 2006.
