Natural Products and Peptides

The plant species Hippophaë rhamnoides, or common sea-buckthorn.
We specialise in modern drug design inspired by Nature – and investigate compounds from plants, fungi and many other living organisms.

Our research aims to develop innovative pharmaceutical products and research technologies that may alleviate the public health burden caused by lifestyle diseases, cancers, diseases of the central nervous system, infectious diseases and deterioration of such diseases as a result of drug resistance.
 
Scientists within the Natural Products Research section consolidate their internationally recognised expertise and explore synergies by combining strongholds in advanced NMR spectroscopy, peptides and peptidomimetics, in vitro pharmacology, and drug design inspired by naturally occurring scaffolds.
