Quantum computing in Drug Discovery
When you want to explain how nature works, you can describe the different processes on several levels. However, when researchers want to explain interactions between biomolecules, such as proteins, DNA, lipids or even drug interactions and effects, they must descend to the atomic level in order to explain accurately what nature is telling us.   Du...

The importance of protein-protein interactions
This month, Dr. Claudio Dagostin spent a few hours with us at Intelligent Pharma. Dr. Dagostin is an expert from the University of Cambridge in protein-protein interactions and gave us an interesting talk about the role of this type of interaction in nature and in therapeutics. Definitively, working on disrupting protein-protein interactions is a cha...

Molecular Dynamics, from high performance computing to high throughput screening
There is a widespread consensus that the use of a rigid model of a protein target is highly limiting as does not take into account natural conformational variations of the protein and, in particular, the thermodynamics and kinetics of the binding process of a drug, which can be of a great importance in drug discovery. The computational methodology that allows ...

Molecular Modeling beyond Drug Discovery
Intelligent Pharma has historically focused all its activities on drug discovery. Our clients range from big pharmaceutical companies to small and virtual biotech, most of them focused on “red life sciences” or, in other words, focused on developing new drugs and treatments for human health.   However, since some years ago, we also det...
