Hi guys

My name is Sergio,(sergio.decherchi@iit.it) I am 30 and I got a PhD on Machine Learning in April 2011 (PhD thesis). In this site you can find papers, pics, software and other things.


My current interests focus on computational and machine learning tools for drug discovery: these embrace tools for Poisson-Boltzmann equation solution, molecular surface definition/processing, learning methods for drug desing/discovery and virtual screening.

Here the site we opened on electrostatics for biological systems: www.electrostaticszone.eu. There you can get the research papers and software tools we are developing for the, NIH granted, DelPhi project at D3/IIT together with prof. E. Alexov lab at Clemson University (USA).

This video is about an ongoing computational chemistry research on ligand-target binding kinetics: for the first time, the binding process of Dadme ligand to Purine Nucleoside Phosphorilase target is obtained in a Molecular Dynamics simulation. The video is 40 ns of unbiased MD we carried at IIT/D3.
