The LIPCHEM group combines synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and total organic synthesis to study the chemistry and biology of lipids. We have prepared polyunsaturated fatty acids, oxygenated fatty acids and specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators that have been subjected to biological investigations. In addition, we have contributed to the development of new methodology within synthetic organic chemistry, and the identification of new lead compounds in medicinal chemistry projects targeting diseases such as cancer and type-2 diabetes. These life science oriented projects are conducts in collaboration with groups both abroad and in Norway (see below).
