The scientific responsible for the company is Dr. Paolo Benedetti
and the administrator is Dr. Monica Clementi. Part-time contributions
are given by other people educated in the Perugia group, including
Dr. Manuel Pastor, presently at IMIM
(Barcelona, SPAIN), who wrote most of the codes of our products.
The main field of application is drug discovery and design by merging
molecular modeling techniques and QSAR methods into 3D-QSAR models.
The same chemometric strategies can also be used in food chemistry,
environmental chemistry, biochemistry, geochemistry, image analysis,
process and product control and optimization, and any other problem
Our main cooperating company is Molecular
Discovery LTD, that developes and distributes the computational
chemistry software GRID,
the outputs of which are best suited for our products. Molecular
Discovery is also distributing from the beginning of 2001 Volsurf,
probably the most appropriate tool for modeling and predicting pharmacokinetic
data, while other new tools are presently under development.
For general purposes in Windows environment we highly recommend
using the software produced and distributed by Umetrics,
namely SIMCA for data analysis and MODDE for experimental
design and optimization.
