Dr. Guida earned his undergraduate and Ph.D. degrees from the University of South Florida. After postdoctoral work at Duke University, he joined the Eckerd College faculty for the first time in 1976. He remained at Eckerd until 1985, where he and his students published papers describing their research in organic chemistry. He then became a Senior Research Associate at Columbia University, working in the area of computational chemistry, and later joined Ciba Pharmaceuticals in Summit, New Jersey where he was responsible for a structural biochemistry and biochemical profiling group. Dr. Guida returned to Eckerd College in 1999 to teach biochemistry. His recent research has focused on structure-based enzyme inhibitor design using computational and experimental methods.

Dr. Guida now works as a professor of chemistry at the University South Florida
