Dr. Mara Luini (MIUR fellowship, PRIN 2007)

Dr. Mara Luini graduated in 2009 with a thesis on modelling of toxicity of fragrances and QSAR modelling for chemical design of citotoxic activity of cis-platinum derivatives. Later she has worked with a fellowship in the PRIN07 project: "Development and validation of QSAR models, applicable in REACH regulation, for the prediction of properties and activities of PBTs and EDs." developing models on BCF.

Dr. Pamela Pilutti (MIUR fellowship, PRIN PROJECT SITECOS)

Dr. Pilutti graduated in 2002 under the supervision of Prof. Gramatica with a thesis on atmospheric degradation QSAR modelling of Volatile Organic Compounds. Since then she collaborated with the QSAR Research Unit, with some fellowships, developing QSAR models of different kinetic reaction rate constants for tropospheric degradation by OH, nitrate radicals and ozone. She developed also tools for the global atmospheric persistence/degradability (ATPIN/ATDIN). Recently, in the SITECOS project of PRIN 2004-06, she has developed QSAR models on mutagenicity/genotoxicity of PAH and Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (PAC), sorbed on Particulate Matter (PM).
