Massimiliano Meli

Technical Collaborator

RESEARCH ACTIVITY

He deals with hardware and software maintenance used in the research group of "Biomolecular simulations and computational chemistry" of the ICRM of Milan, now SCITEC-CNR. Among the hardware resources present in the research group there are clusters of computers (CPU / GPU) that manage the Linux operating system where the calculations necessary for carrying out the research are carried out. In parallel with this management activity, his research activity is aimed at the use and development of computational chemistry methods for the structural and dynamic characterization of biosystems. It is engaged in the study of the formation of peptide aggregates and organic molecules with the ability to form aggregates similar to those that form in the formation of amyloid plaques. During his research he is also involved in the study of DNA / RNA-protein interaction. His research also includes the study and design of small molecules offers to interfere with proteins and enzymes of biomedical interest.
