Dr. Andrew D. Mesecar is the Walther Professor of Cancer Structural Biology and a Professor of Biochemistry (by courtesy) at Purdue University. Dr. Mesecar received a B.S. in Chemistry from Purdue University and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Notre Dame. His Post Doctorate was at the University of California, Berkeley. His lab gained recognition among the U.S. Department of Defense by becoming a part of the Defense Science Study Group between 2006 and 2008. Dr. Mesecar's research interests include understanding the ability of proteins and enzymes to recognize their substrates. By understanding this, they can develop therapeutics for treating cancer and infectious diseases.
