Medicinal Chemistry Research

We design, synthesise and investigate molecules that target receptors, transporters, enzymes as well as signalling proteins in the brain.

Our research objective is to improve the understanding – at the molecular level – of the function of biological targets as well as ligand-host structure-activity-relationships (SAR). We are involved in studies of the brain in both normal and diseased states.

Scientists within the Medicinal Chemistry Research section have expertise in a wide range of disciplines, including organic chemistry, computational chemistry, peptide and protein chemistry, as well as molecular biology and pharmacology. We collaborate closely with other research groups within the department and with external partners in academia and the pharmaceutical industry, both in Denmark and abroad.
