Dr. Minond studies the role of ADAM family metalloproteases in cancer progression. His program includes discovering and/or developing small molecule selective probes/leads and utilization of these molecules in cell based studies in order to discover potential drug candidates.
Dr. Minond completed his undergraduate studies in Biology and Biochemistry in 1993 from the Odessa State University of Odessa, Ukraine, and his Ph.D. in Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida ("The Roles of Substrate Sequence and Thermal Stability in the Collagenolytic Action of Matrix Metalloproteinases ") in 2006. He then joined the Translational Research Institute of The Scripps Research Institute as a post doctoral associate under Professor Peter S. Hodder. In 2009 he was promoted to a Senior Scientist position. Dr. Minond has 12 publications. Dr. Minond joined the Torrey Pines Institute in August 2010 as an Assistant Member.
