Research

My lab is focused on the discovery and development of novel protein modulators as the basis for new therapeutics. Of main interest are the challenging targets belonging to the biological space of protein-protein interactions (PPIs). For this purpose, we are integrating cutting-edge computational, biophysical and cellular biology tools. We are focused on the interaction of calcineurin-NFAT proteins known as T-cell activation switch as the basis for developing new immunosuppressant and on immune checkpoint receptors function as T-cell inhibition switch as the basis for developing new therapeutics for inflammation and cancer.
