Modeling the pharmacokinetics profiles of therapeutic peptides by chemoinformatics methods

Project description

Virtual screening of therapeutic peptides could break current barriers to widespread use

Over the last couple of decades, substantial technological progress has renewed scientists' interest in the promise of therapeutic peptides to improve the health and well-being of people around the globe. However, despite their potential application in numerous conditions and diseases, therapeutic peptides face important practical barriers related to low stability and short half-life. The EU-funded PeptiMOL project is developing mathematical models and computational tools in a Java-based chemoinformatic platform to help scientists virtually screen or design peptides based on desirable physicochemical characteristics and bioactivity. The project aims to introduce alternative routes of peptide administration, replacing the multiple injections per day currently required for many conditions.
