This week one of our very own, an Andrews alumnus of the Chemistry Department of 1993, Dr. Brain Johns came to present on the topic of discovery and development of an HIV drug. Dr. Johns is the director of HIV Medicinal & DMPK, GlaxoSmithKline at Research Triangle Park in North Carolina. Dr. Johns’ presentation was very interesting, targeting the area of chemistry I am most intrigued with, biochemistry. He presented well and was quite engaged, being well verse in his field and knowledgeable of his subject matter.
