The primary focus of the Stevens laboratory is structure- based drug design and the advancement of technologies to make rationale drug discovery more reliable and robust. The Stevens lab has helped to develop several marketed or late stage clincial drugs – Tamiflu for influenza virus (market), Kuvan for PKU (market), Nesina for type II diabetes (market), ozinimod for multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease (completed Phase III), pegvaliase for PKU (market), and namacizumab for liver  brosis (Phase II). Our lab has also helped to develop automation, miniaturization, and accleration technologies including nanoliter volume crystallization and imaging, membrane protien crystallization technologies, and high throughput protein expression and purification technologies. These developments and drug discovery programs have led to 5 biotech startups, all involving students in the Stevens research laboratory.
