Our goal is to combine knowledge in synthetic organic chemistry natural product chemistry, structure elucidation and molecular biology / biochemistry for design and synthesis of potential drugs and biomolecular tools.
About the Organic chemistry section
Our research interests are: Synthesis of natural products and bioactive molecules, medicinal chemistry (development of antimicrobial and anticancer compounds, diagnostics), development of novel and sustainable synthetic methodology, isolation and structure elucidation of natural products, structural and functional NMR studies, clinical NMR-metabolomics, radiopharmaceutical chemistry (PET).
Most of our research is of an experimental nature, but the experimental results are often supported by modelling and theoretical calculations.
We offer education at all levels from bachelor to Ph.D. degree within our research areas. Feel free to contact us for more information
