Research Groups

Biostructural Research

We determine three-dimensional structures of macromolecules that are potential targets for new drugs, and study the relationship between their structure and function

Biostructural Research

Experimental Pharmacology

We study receptor and transporter pharmaco- logy using experimental techniques spanning from molecular pharmacology to in vivo testing in animals and human clinical trials.

Experimental Research

Medicinal Chemistry Research

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

Medicinal Chemistry Research

Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology

We focus on a range of biological systems, particularly those that regulate brain function, as well as elements and processes implicated in many neurological disorders.

Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology

Natural Products and Peptides

We specialise in modern drug lead discovery and development inspired by nature - and investigate bioactive compounds from plants, fungi and other living organisms.

Natural Products and Peptides

Pharmacotherapy

We seek to elucidate the factors that influence patients’ individual responses to drug substances, with the aim of optimising the treatment and safety for each patient.

Centre

Center for Biopharmaceuticals

With cutting-edge chemical biology approaches we aim to create peptides and proteins with novel properties in order to develop advanced protein-based drug candidates.
