Dr. Marcelo Castilho, a Professor at the Universidade Federal da Bahia, spent two months working with the Vajda lab during the summer of 2018. The first paper resulting from this collaboration, TQ Froes et al. Structure-based druggability assessment of anti-virulence targets from Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, was published on April 17, 2019, in the journal Current Protein & Peptide Science. Dr. Castilho is a very driven scientist, and we were happy to have him in the lab. He was also working on a second paper while in the Vajda lab, and the paper is close to getting finished.
