La nostra ricerca sui canali intracellulari e sul Covid-19:

I canali ionici come bersaglio di farmaci antivirali

Il canale umano TPC1 e il meccanismo di conduzione degli ioni sodio (in giallo il filtro selettivo,

in arancio il filtro idrofobico, in stick la molecola che attiva il canale, il phosphatidylinositol 3,5-bisphosphate). Lo ione sodio (in blu) diffonde lungo il poro solvatato da 5-6 molecole di acqua.

HPC Infrastructure:

With additional 64 TB of storage (left) we completed the high performance computing infrastructure dedicated to research  for future antibiotics generation (see at 16 workstations equipped with 4 last generation Titan GPUs each and 200 TB storage for backup, all stored at the Department of Physics, Universita degli Studi di Cagliari.
