Adam is currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow hosted by IIT's Molecular Modeling & Drug Discovery Lab of Dr. Marco De Vivo. Adam earned his Ph.D. from the "Modeling of Chemical Properties of Nano- and Biostructures" program at the Charles University in Prague, while working at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IOCB CAS) under the supervison of Prof. Pavel Hobza. Adam's dissertation focused on quantum chemical approaches to in silico drug design. After almost 2 years of postdocing in prof. Hobza's group at IOCB CAS, he joined Dr. De Vivo's group in January 2018. Adam's research aims at computationally driven drug design for pharmaceutically relevant metalloenzymes and his MSCA project is focused on elucidating the structure-function relationship and molecular mechanisms of functionalized gold nanoparticles (nanozymes) with phosphodiester bond cleavage activity.
