Computer-aided drug design with simulations of small noncoding-RNA molecules and understanding their function in cancer and cardiovascular diseases.


I am a pharmaceutical chemist with my research interests now in short non-coding RNA sequences and how to mimic their function using synthetic drugs. My background is in Pharmacy, and I defended my Doctoral thesis in drug design of sirtuins in autumn 2015 in UEF. After my dissertation, I left to study molecular dynamics methods and enzyme engineering to Brno, Czech Republic. I can use all the basic tools of computational drug design, including docking and molecular dynamics simulations and up to some simple quantum chemistry calculations.
