Novel Therapeutic and Prevention Agents

Most drugs bind to specific targets inside the body, usually receptors or enzymes, and modulate their biological activities. Biochemical, molecular, and cellular techniques are used to help understand these dynamics and identify targets for the development of potential treatments for diabetes, cancer, and infectious, neurodegenerative, and cardiovascular diseases.

Our research teams are working to identify and synthesize molecules that can be used as therapeutic, biotechnological, or prophylactic agents against infections caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites. This field of research draws on a network of expertise in biochemistry, microbiology, medicinal chemistry, and biophysics.
