Fondazione Ebris

Simone Di Micco graduated cum laude in Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Naples “Federico II” in 2004. He moved to the University of Salerno (Italy), in the group of Prof. L. Gomez-Paloma developing an STD-NMR-based protocol for the screening of DNA ligands. He was visiting graduated student at University of Siena (Italy), in the research group of Prof. M. Botta, for drug discovery studies by computational techniques. He received his PhD degree, with excellent mark, from the University of Salerno in 2009 under the supervision of Prof. G. Bifulco. He received the Randazzo Prize 2010 by The Italian Chemical Society for PhD thesis. During his PhD studies, he was visiting scientist at the Burnham Institute for Medical Research (La Jolla, CA) in the group of Prof. M. Pellecchia, working on the design of new Bcl-xL inhibitors. For his work at this institute he was awarded the EMBO fellowship. He was visiting Postdoctoral at University of Bristol in the group of Prof. C. Butts, working on stereostructural determination of natural products by accurate NOE-distance measurements. He was Principal Investigator of CINECA ISCRA (HP10CR919I, 2014) and TRIDEO (Id_17099, 2016) by AIRC and Cariplo Foundation. He is now Research Scientist at EBRIS. His research activities focus on studying drug–macromolecule interactions by NMR spectroscopy and computational chemistry methods in addition to configurational and conformational studies of bioactive compounds by quantum mechanical calculation of NMR parameters.
