Hostos Professor Dr. Yoel Rodríguez earned a Fulbright Award earlier this year that took him to the Slovak Republic for an expanded research trip during the Fall 2016 semester.

As part of the award, Professor Rodríguez also attended the 21th EuroQSAR 2016 “Where Molecular Simulations Meet Drug Discovery” Conference in Verona, Italy, from September 4 to 8. While there, he presented a poster entitled "Structure-Based Design of Selective BRD4-brd1 Small-Molecule Inhibitors.”

Professor Rodríguez, who is conducting research related to the treatment of cardiovascular and heart disease, recently sent some pictures along to update his Hostos family!
