On the scientific side, he co-authored Chemoinformatics: Theory, Practice, and Products (Springer-Verlag), a text that overviews modern chemoinformatics technologies, and The Combinatorial Index (Academic Press), a widely used text on high-throughput chemical synthesis. In the lab, Dr. Bunin did medicinal synthetic chemistry developing patented new chemotypes for protease inhibition at Axys Pharmaceuticals (now Celera) and RGD mimics to inhibit GP-IIbIIIa at Genentech. Dr. Bunin is on a patent for Carfilzomib--a selective proteasome inhibitor now in phase 3 clinical trials for multiple myeloma.
