Obtuvo su Licenciatura en Física por la Universidad de Buenos Aires, y el Doctorado en Física por la misma institución. Realizó estudios postdoctorales en The Scripps Research Institute (La Jolla, California) en el área de biología computacional y biofísica; luego se unió a  MolSoft LLC (San Diego, CA) como investigador senior, peremaneciendo allí cinco años. De 2007 a 2012 fue profesor asociado en el School of Biomedical Informatics de la University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (Houston, TX), y desde entonces pertenece a la carrera del investigador científico del CONICET.

Acerca del Laboratorio

Desde hace ya varios años, la (bio)química computacional se ha establecido como una herramienta fundamental en el largo proceso de descubrimiento de nuevos fármacos, permitiendo un enfoque más racional, mejorando la eficiencia, y ahorrando tiempo, costos y esfuerzo.

Nuestro laboratorio se ha enfocado desde hace más de 15 años en dos líneas de investigación complementarias: i) estudiando la relación entre la estructura de los complejos biomoleculares, sus propiedades (termo)dinámicas, y la función, identificar moléculas que modulen blancos de interés farmacéutico para una variedad de enfermedades, y ii) el desarrollo de una nueva generación de métodos computacionales para el diseño computacional de fármacos. Una componente esencial de nuestra investigación es la estrecha colaboración con investigadores experimentales del país y del extranjero. Utilizamos simulaciones biomoleculares, modelado de estructuras de proteínas por homología, métodos de diseño de fármacos líderes basados en la estructura del receptor y del ligando, y herramientas de inteligencia artificial y quimioinformática.

Nuestro laboratorio ha establecido colaboraciones con instituciones internacionales como la Universidad de Montana, en Missoula, MT, Estados Unidos, la Universidad de Antioquia, en Medellín, Colombia, y la Universidad de Sao Paulo, en San Carlos (SP), Brasil.
