Results about: medicinal chemistry

Our research focuses on three angles of peptide and protein chemistry : the design, synthesis and structure of bioactive molecules. From a structural perspective, we apply modern NMR techniques to study complex molecular recognition processes.

Promising compounds against a cancer target

The molecules synthesized by Ernest Giralt’s lab at IRB Barcelona bind a key protein in cancer that has received little attention as a therapeutic target.

The long-term goal is to provide a new chemotherapy treatment.

The chemist Ernest Giralt receives the main award of the European Peptide Society

The coordinator of Chemistry and Pharmacology Programme at IRB Barcelona is presented with the Josef Rudinger Memorial Lecture Award during the European Peptide Symposium, in Sofia, Bulgaria.
