Areas of focus
Discovery of small molecules addressing cancer and infectious diseases.
Antimicrobial resistance and virulence, host-pathogen interaction, new antimicrobials and therapeutic strategies.
Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Processes, Biocatalysis, Focused Screening, Bacteriology, Molecular Biology and Bacterial Genetics.
Cancer Therapies, Infectious and Neglected Diseases.
Partnerships in scientific areas
The collaboration with international highly qualified groups in the areas of computational approaches in drug discovery, chemo-enzymatic processes, enzymology in drug discovery, in vitro biological evaluation, metagenomic, molecular epidemiology, host-pathogen interaction and in vivo evaluation of new drugs with training of students in these areas to provide them the ability for innovative research using robust tools in rational drug design to address relevant drug targets.
Beyond the improvement of scientific knowledge, we aim for impact in human health.
