Professor Luque awarded for his work in Knowledge Transfer

The professor Javier Luque (Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences, Universitat de Barcelona) has been awarded with the Antonio Caparrós prize on Knowledge Transfer, in colaboration with the start-up company Pharmacelera. His research group Computational Biology and Drug Design have worked on a methodology to create new molecular describers (that is, quantitative representations of the molecule features that allow a computational analysis and treatment). Pharmacelera, with these new molecular describers, created several tools, such as PharmQSAR and PharmScreen, softwared that ease the discovery of new drugs and which are already used by several pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies. These are new computer tools that ease the design of new drugs for the treatment of diseases such as cancer.
