Luca Codutti


I am an NMR spectroscopist with biotechnological backgrounds. Currently I am working with the structural characterization of RNA binding proteins and the determination of the binding of fragment ligands to proteins of pharmaceutical interest, such as Kinases and Phosphodiestherases and GPCR.
