Therapeutic Molecules

Our team is developping original and robust synthetic methods to be applied in the synthesis of bioactive compounds. An important feature is the selectivity of chemical transformations (chemoselectivity and stereoselectivity) to access nitrogen, oxygen or phosphorus containg compounds.

Our team is developping numerous total syntheses of bioactive natural products an their analogues. Our goal is to integrate molecular diversity in our syntheses, especially in the field of alkaloid, aminoacids and oligosaccharide synthesis

As a tool for therapeutic innovation, we aim to apply the concept of molecular diversity to the design and synthesis of bioactive compounds. We have already obtained significant results for the preparation of antiviral, antitumoral and antibiotic compounds.
