Her research is focused on the development and application of different computational techniques for studying the dynamics of biomolecules and the molecular recognition mechanisms, in particular protein-protein, protein-ligand and DNA-ligand interactions. Most of her research is devoted to the development of inhibitors of targets that play a key role in the etiology of various pathologies, including cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
To this end, the research activity is based on the development of analysis methods and on the integrated use of molecular dyn amics and docking with experimental information to study the structure, the dynamics and the functional mechanisms of the targets of interest.
