Giulio Vistoli was born in 1968. He received his Laurea degree in medicinal chemistry at University of Milan in 1994. During his PhD studies with Prof L Villa, he spent a period in Lausanne under the supervision of Prof B Testa with whom he has fruitfully collaborated since 1996. In 1999, he became assistant professor in medicinal chemistry at University of Milan to be promoted to Associate Professor in 2010. His expertise involves the computational approaches as applied to pharmaceutical sciences in their broadest sense ranging from homology modeling and virtual screening to ADME predictions or drug delivery optimization. His recent research focuses on developing new approaches in docking simulations and scoring particularly focused on drug metabolism prediction. He has co-authored over 130 research and review articles and book chapters in the fields of drug design and computational chemistry
