Beicer Tapia

Biochemistry PhD Student, Marianski Lab

Job Title


Looking for summer research opportunities for 2024 in the field of Molecular Dynamics. Open to learning more about companies that work in drug-design using computational approaches.


As a member of the Marianski lab, Beicer C. Tapia is interested in the principles of the molecular recognition between synthetic carbohydrate receptors and complex glycans and recognition of glycans as viable targets for synthetic molecules for sensors, drugs development and viral binding inhibition. Beicer is also investigating the sequence-structure relation in carbohydrates for discovery of novel carbohydrate-based materials.
