Notes: 

Sara Fortuna graduated in Chemistry from the University of Trieste in 2006 and has been awarded her PhD in Chemistry from Warwick University (UK) in September 2010. After spending two years in SISSA in Dr. Fabris group looking at metal-supported organometallic nanostructures, she worked in Prof.Scoles group in the Department of Medical and Biological Sciences at the University of Udine on a project entitled “Molecular Simulations for Nanomedicine”.

Sara Fortuna area of expertise is in the multiscale modelling of noncovalently bound molecular systems. She acquired competences in both soft-matter (lattice and off-lattice models, Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations) and DFT techniques. This skill set is suitable for and transferable to the study of the structure-properties relationship of a large variety of chemical systems. Now her research mainly focuses on the peptide-protein interactions for the optimisation of peptide-based binders for molecular recognition.
