Currently, Dr Brogi is a research fellow at the Department of Biotechnology, Chemistry and Pharmacy at
University of Siena, Italy. Dr. Brogi is the head of Molecular Modeling Unit in the research group directed
by Prof. Giuseppe Campiani. The scientific production of Dr. Brogi consists of over 50 papers published on
international journals, one patent and one book chapter.
Dr. Brogi research activities has been mainly focused on computational approaches in drug discovery
with particular attention to lead optimization in terms of pharmacokinetics properties and metabolic
stability. Research activities focus on the discovery and optimization of small-molecules as potential
antalgic agents, antitumor compounds, and also with therapeutic potential for the treatment of
neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, and parasitic (malaria) diseases. These interests include target
selection and the rational design of innovative drugs, the application and validation of novel
computational strategies, and the study of important structure-function relationships.
