Research interest and activities

Our research is in the field of computational molecular medicine, with a focus on drug design for therapeutic interventions against neuropathologies and cancer

To this end, most of our projects are inserted in a ‘interdisciplinary integrative circle’ where our expertise in protein modeling, simulations and in silico screening of small molecules is combined with experimental biochemistry and organic synthesis to determine libraries of candidate molecules against the chosen target.
