Sílvia Osuna Oliveras, 2016 FPdGi Scientific Research Award

The winner has been chosen for opening up a new path to reducing the cost of drugs through computational chemistry

Sílvia Osuna Oliveras (Castelló d’Empúries, Girona, 1983) holds a degree and doctorate in Chemistry from the University of Girona. She has made study and research stays at institutions such as the University of California in Los Angeles (United States) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium). 

Her research has focused on conducting the MetMoDEzyme project, which aims to develop a computational protocol for designing enzymes to reduce the cost of producing drugs. Enzymes are nature’s catalysts which make all the chemical reactions necessary for life possible.
