Léa EL Khoury graduated in Biology from the Lebanese University in 2011. In 2013, she completed a Masters degree in “Structures-Interactions of Macromolecules and Functional Genomics” from the Saint-Joseph University of Beirut. She received her double PhD in Computational Chemistry (2014-2017) from Pierre and Marie Curie University-Sorbonne Universités and Saint Joseph University of Beirut. Her PhD research was mainly devoted to the modeling, by polarizable molecular mechanics / dynamics methods, complexes of inhibitors of therapeutic interest with the integrase and the protein 7 of the nucleocapsid (NCp7) of Human Immunodeficiency Virus-1. She also studied the experimental aspects of the interactions using spectroscopic techniques. Léa joined Dr. Mobley Lab in July 2017 to work on molecular dynamic simulations and absolute binding free energy calculations.
