Nicole Bertoletti, PhD

Lab Location


I am an enthusiastic protein crystallographer with a strong interest in drug discovery/design. During my master's in Italy, I achieved extensive knowledge in computational chemistry and structure/ligand-based drug design of cancer therapeutics. I obtained my Ph.D. in Germany in the group of Prof. Dr. Klebe where I discover my passion for protein crystallography. Now, as a postdoc, I am working on the design of novel antiviral and cancer treatments using structure-based drug design and cryoEM.
