Peptide Science, Natural Products, Chemical Biology, Pharmacognosy, Organic Synthesis
Essential Biomolecules: Chemistry, Structure and Application of Peptides and Other Bioactive Compounds

The Laboratory focuses on the study of chemistry and biology of bioactive peptides and synthetic analogues. This study encompasses solid phase chemistry, molecular design, structure analysis, combinatorial synthesis and biological investigations. Targets are selected on the basis of novel molecular architecture, important biological activity and interesting mechanism of action. In addition, we are interested in the development of new and/or improved chemical methods for the synthesis of organic compounds of biological importance.
