14C-labeling laboratory



Published on 30 April 2020
The focus of our research is the discovery of high throughput reactions, the development of new tools for bio-orthogonal chemistry (also known as "click") and the investigation of reliable methodologies for carbon-14 labeling of biologically active small molecules and relevant nanoparticles.

We are recepient of the ERC Consolidator Grant FASTLabEx (awarded to D. Audisio). Our laboratory is member of the ISOTOPICS (ITN) and FLIX (Fet Open) European consortia.

- October 2021: Post doctoral positions are currently available. 
If you are interested, please send CV with a list of current publications, a cover letter motivating the interest in the position and the names and addresses of two referees.

 Post-doc in Click Chemistry :  In the frame of a collaborative project aiming at developing new technologies based on chemical biology approaches for therapy and diagnosis (see for example Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2019, 58, 6366), our group wishes to recruit a motivated student for a period of 18 months. The project involves the synthesis of peptide-nucleic acids coupled to sydnones or cyclooctyne reactants to develop biorthogonal clearing reagents and new technologies to capture antibodies. Apply to: 

 Post-doc in Isotope Labeling:  Within an ANR funded project, we aim to develop novel methodologies for the effective late-stage labeling of complex pharmaceutically molecules, including glycosides and proteins. The project will explore new avenues utilizing sulfur isotope (34S and 35S), as the favorable physical properties of this beta emitter (35S) is particularly attractive for the labeling of macromolecules. Apply to:
