Our projects focus on biological and medicinal carbohydrate chemistry and require strong interest in organic synthesis and glycochemistry. Once you have mastered the synthesis of selected target molecules you will explore the biophysical, biological, medicinal and pharmacological properties. Currently our projects focus on:

Mimicry of antimicrobial peptides by amphiphilic aminoglycoside antimicrobials  [read more]

Development of novel therapeutic approaches to overcome bacterial resistance in Gram-negative bacteria [read more]

Antitumor Glycolipids [read more]
Financial support for our research projects is provided by the following organizations:
