The LIPCHEM group combines synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and total organic synthesis to study the chemistry and biology of lipids. We are currently involved in the synthesis of specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs), i.e. protectins, resolvins and maresins and their analogs, as well as the individual biochemical pathways involved in the formation of the SPMs. 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. These life science oriented projects are conducts in collaboration with groups both abroad and in Norway (see below).
