Cancer and Infectious Diseases

Through interdisciplinary collaborations, the cluster aims at discovery and optimization of multidrug resistant anticancer and/or antimicrobial lead compounds and validate these by in vitro and in vivo models. Our mission is to:

  • Design peptides and peptidomimetics that targets multidrug-resistant bacterial infections
  • Identify and validate novel anti-cancer compounds and targets
  • Develop and apply cutting-edge technologies for identification of plant and fungal natural products with potential as chemotherapeutic leads
