Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Milan
Professor of medicinal chemistry
Alessandro Pedretti was born in 1970. He received his Laurea degree in Medicinal Chemistry at University of Milan in 1995. After PhD studies with Prof. Luigi Villa, he became assistant professor in medicinal chemistry in 2001 and associate professor in 2015 at University of Milan.
His interests mainly deal with computer programming applied in computational chemistry, realizing novel software tools for molecular modelling, docking analysis and virtual screening.
More in details, he developed VEGA (available at www.vegazz.net), a software package able to build, visualize, optimize and analyze 3D structures. VEGA can also compute several molecular fields analyzing their dynamic profiles during the simulation time.
Alessandro Pedretti’s research activity started in 1997 and led to the publication of 63 articles published in peer-reviewed international journals, 6 book chapters and some other scientific contributions.
TOPIC: From Library Preparation to Ligand-based and Structurebased Virtual Screening
