Rapid and Rational COVID-19 Drug Cocktail Discovery

Thursday, September 3, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This program is brought to you by our partnership with the Thayer School of Engineering.

Professor Sarpeshkar will describe his research on drug cocktail treatments that may be effective in treating COVID-19. Through his research, he has invented analog circuits as well as ‘cytomorphic’ supercomputing electronic chips and prototypes that simulate cellular computation for potentially rapid drug discovery. Sarpeshkar is also working on developing his analog cytomorphic supercomputer to act as a one-of-a-kind smart search engine that could identify potential treatments to all diseases extremely rapidly. He hopes that in a few years, he will be able to identify possible treatments to pandemics within just one day.

Rahul Sarpeshkar is a pioneer in synthetic and systems biology and the Thomas E. Kurtz Professor at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. He has published over 140 research articles, holds 43 patents, delivered a TEDx talk on analog supercomputers, and is a Fellow of the IEEE and the National Academy of Inventors. He has authored a leading textbook on analog circuits and bioelectronic systems. Sarpeshkar is also a Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Physics, and Molecular and Systems Biology. Sarpeshkar heads an interdisciplinary group at Dartmouth that uses analog circuits and analog computation as a universal language for impacting many disciplines. He holds a BS in electrical engineering and physics from MIT and a Ph.D. in computation and neural systems from California Institute of Technology.
