Horacio Pérez-Sánchez

Full Researcher, Principal Investigator of the BioUniversidad Católica de Murcia (UCAM)

My research is multidisciplinary and based on structural bioinformatics, high performance computing (HPC) and physical chemistry (PC). I have introduced several methodological developments in structural bioinformatics, implementing them in HPC architectures (Supercomputers, GPUs) so that they can be accessed by other researchers either as standalone software packages or web tools. Some of them have been commercialized directly with industry. I have applied these developments directly to structural biology (protein and DNA structure modelling) and drug discovery projects (blood anticoagulants, Parkinson, Alzheimer, cancer, Fabry disease, anti-inflammatories, Zika virus, etc) or for the analysis and interpretation of experimental data from structural biology projects (DNA mutations, formation of complexes, encapsulation processes, food science, ion channels, etc).
