We invite you to participate at the fourth NEVERMIND COFFEE HOUR organized by University of Milano about chemical constructs nd probes to support drug delivery and monitoring in the brain.

Register here!

And stay tuned for our next events! 




SARA PELLEGRINOsara pellegrino

is an Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Milan, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Italy. In 2005, she earned a Ph. D in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Milano. In 2005-2006, she was a visiting scientist (Vigoni fellowship) at the University of Regensburg (Germany). Her researches focus on the synthesis of peptides and peptide mimics, and their application in Medicinal Chemistry, Biochemistry and Material Science. She is particularly interested in peptide self-assembly and in deciphering molecular interactions at the basis of peptides activities, both as bioactive compounds and as biocomponents for drug delivery. Her studies take advantage on the use of non-standard amino acids as molecular bricks for the stabilization of peptide conformation and activity.

Pierfausto Seneci is an Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry, University of Milan. Between 1986 and 1996 he worked at Marion Merrell Dow in Italy and France, at Selectide in Arizona, and at SmithKline Beecham in France, on natural products and neurodegenerative diseases. Between 1997 and 2000 he was Director of Lead Discovery at GlaxoSmithKline, working on antibacterial and CNS agents. In 2000 he was a Founder of the biotech NADAG (Munich, D), leading as CSO efforts towards disease-modifying agents to cure Alzheimer’s disease. In late 2002 he joined the University of Milan, where he currently teaches basic and advanced chemistry courses, and leads medicinal chemistry projects in CNS and oncology. He is the author of four books, more than 120 scientific papers, and 15 patents.
