Research interests

Generally medicinal chemistry and the development of new methodology for the construction of compound classes of relevance to medicinal chemistry. Using these tools we are trying to develop new probes and tools that will help us to elucidate the underlying mechanisms responsible for the regulation of different pharmacological targets: Ion channels, enzymes and GPCR’s.

Please see group web-page for more informantion.

 - Member of the Horizon2020 “Click-It” consortium receiving 6 mio. Euro (2015-2020) where we are developing a new imaging technology based on in-vivo click-chemistry.

 - Member of the Marie Curie ETN "AlphaSy" consortium receiving 4.1 mio. Euro (2018-2022) where we are developing a new imaging agents to diagnose Parkisons disease at an early stage.

 - Coordinator of the ETN-EID project SAFER receiving 1.3 mio. Euro (2017-2021). SAFER aims to identify functionally Selective Agonists for the 5-HT2A Serotonin Receptor.
