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.
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 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.
The award is in recognition of longstanding contributions to the field.
