Yinglong Miao

Yinglong Miao is an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular Biosciences and Center for Computational Biology at the University of Kansas. Yinglong obtained Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry in the lab of Peter Ortoleva at Indiana University. His graduate work was focused on all-atom multiscale modeling of infectious viruses and other bionanosystems. He subsequently began his postdoctoral research with Jeremy Smith and Jerome Baudry at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. There he combined the world-class experimental (neutron scattering and NMR) and supercomputing resources to investigate the structural dynamics and function of protein enzymes that are responsible for drug metabolism. Yinglong then moved to Andy McCammon’s lab at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and University of California San Diego, where he worked on both method developments and cutting-edge applications in accelerated biomolecular simulations and drug discovery of the G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Yinglong develops novel theoretical and computational methods, with applications in protein folding, molecular recognition, cellular signaling. His lab currently works on accelerated simulations and computer-aided drug design of GPCRs, intramembrane proteases, RNA and RNA-binding proteins.
