Lemont Kier Expert Witness and Consultant In Medicinal Chemistry, Drug Development And Drug Design

The author of seven textbooks and over 250 research articles, Professor Lemont Kier introduced the use of molecular orbital theory to compute the preferred conformation of molecules, participated in the early development of drug design from a random search-and-formulate approach into model building activity before actually creating the molecule. He has published the first paper in which a three-dimensional model of a chemical transmitter in the central nervous system was predicted, and has also developed the current theory for defining molecules with a sweet taste. In the early 1990's, he and a colleague developed a method that drug companies use to evaluate databases to find similar compounds. Professor Kier has also been a leader in the development of the theory of the interaction of general anesthetic gases with the body.

With his down-to-earth demeanor, Professor Lemont Kier,"Monty", enjoys explaining complicated chemical processes in a manner that helps specialists advance and non-specialists understand. He consults world-wide as an expert witness, scientific adviser, and researcher through Rubin/Anders Scientific.
