Stories about Wonpil Im

Lehigh researchers quantify the interaction between the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2—the virus that causes COVID-19—with the ACE2 receptors in human cells.

The bioengineering professor discusses his work on the first open source model of the coronavirus spike protein.

Wonpil Im creates the program where the models can be accessed.

Researchers design a compound that triggers an immunological response to Gram-negative bacteria.

Wonpil Im’s web-based graphical user interface, CHARMM GUI, eases modeling of complex biomolecular systems, possibly paving the way for better understanding of drug-resistant bacteria.

The Bessel Award will support his use of computational biophysics to fight drug-resistant bacteria.

A Lehigh scientist hopes to speed the process with biomolecular systems simulation.
