U-M Irving Langmuir Distinguished University Professor of chemical sciences and engineering and corresponding author of the study Nicholas Kotov, emergency medicine assistant professor J. Scott VanEpps, and mechanical engineering professor and leader of the nanobiotics Blue Sky project Angela Violi discuss the development of a new machine learning model that would be able to predict interactions between nanoparticles and proteins. They are hoping to shut down antibiotic-resistant infections and continually morphing pandemic viruses  with these design engineered nanoparticles, looking to develop a unified approach to “understand and design new classes of drugs that have multiple ways of working against bacteria.” The experts further highlight the process and development behind this machine learning model.
