Qualification : Ph.D
Biography :  

Dr. Norbert Nwankwo is the inventor of Computer-Aided Drug Resistance Calculator. It originated from Chapter 6 of his PhD Thesis, “Signal processing-based bioinformatics methods for characterization and identification of bio-functionalities of proteins”,, 2012. Its version is published as a PROPOSAL-Nwankwo N, Seker H, Conf. Proc. IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc., 2010. A functional Calculator was later developed and submitted for patent as “Computer-Aided Drug Resistance Calculator: Calculating Drug Resistance Using Amprenavir as Case Study”. Patent Publication has been made (freepatentsonline).

Norbert holds a B. Pharmacy, and has completed the academic requirement for MPhil/PhD in Bio-informatics from De Montfort University, Leicester, UK. Norbert developed:

1.Computer-Aided Drug Resistance Calculator (Patent Publication No: US2015/0370964).

2.Computer-Aided Druggability Detector (J Bioinf Com Sys Bio., 2016).

3.Computer-Aided Vaccine Potency Assessor (InnoCentive Award ID: 9933477).

4.Computer-Aided Pharmaco-Investigator (Austin Virol and Retrovirology,2015)

5.Computer-Aided Drug Potency Decoder (J Bioengineer & Biomedical Sci,2015)

Norbert lectures at the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
