Main research interests

  • X-ray crystallography applied to Drug Design
  • Structural and functional studies on the interactions of vanadium and copper complexes with serum proteins/oxygen carriers (development of possible anti-diabetic and anti-cancer drugs).
  • Structural and functional studies on the interactions of CORMs (CO-Releasing Molecules) with serum proteins/oxygen carriers (development of putative drugs with anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic and anti-proliferative effects)
  • Structural and functional studies of PtpA (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) inhibitors as a potential approach to fight tuberculosis
