Offer Description

We are devoted to the study of the molecular mechanisms involved in the Toll-like receptors functionality, and in the recognition by PAMPs, such as natural lipopolysaccharides and lipopeptides, with special focus in the design and identification of new compounds able to modulate the TLRs behaviour with possible therapeutic applications. We also pursue to deepen in antimicrobial resistance-related molecular mechanisms, in particular: bacterial envelope and bacterial conjugation proteins. We combine computational methodologies at different resolution scales, docking, and all-atom and coarse-grained MD simulations, and works in close collaboration with international specialists in medicinal chemistry, biochemistry and cell biology.
