Chemistry for life sciences laboratory


Published on 29 March 2021
This laboratory is composed of two expert teams in peptide or pseudo-peptide synthesis, exploiting parallel or combinatorial approaches in various fields: synthesis of inhibitors or probes dedicated to the functional study of zinc metalloproteases; design and synthesis of mini-proteins mimicking the activity of proteins involved in human diseases; development of new protein ligands that can be used as specific probes for molecular imaging; characterization of the cellular immune response and identification of immunogenic protein sequences for diagnostic or vaccine applications.
