Khanh has a Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry and a former student of PINC at San Francisco State University. She has been working at an Organic Chemistry research lab for two years now. The goal of her research is to study different small molecules, their synthetic pathways and inhibition of enzyme, specifically Orotidine-5'-Decarboxylase (ODCase). However, it was time consuming to synthesize all of the potential candidates. Therefore, she is interesting in learning computation-based approach for drug discovery as a way to effectively and efficiently identity the a high potential compound.
