Rational Drug Design of new potential drugs (Erasmus Placement)
Medicinal Chemistry is at the heart of the drug discovery process and the successful applicant actively participates in a research project as exerted by the host group . The training is aimed at motivated students who want to broaden their experience in the field of medicinal chemistry and is performed in the Molecular Modelling Group of Prof. Salvatore Guccione,. The trainee will be involved both in the use of specific state-of-the-art softwares and in practical activities in laboratory,. The trainee has to be flexible and willing to work on any project that is assigned Attention will be paid to analyzing results and keeping adequate documentation. In all, the student will get exposed to doing research to modulate target-ligand interactions that underlie disorders (e.g. neurodegenerative, cancers) using contemporary. in silico protocols to identify and prioritize compounds for synthesis and/or biological assays.
