Synthèse de Molécules et de Macromolécules
pour le Vivant et l’Environnement
Thème : Synthèse et Réactivité de Molécules pour le Vivant
Le groupe Synthèse de Biomolécules, janvier 2019
Our group is positioned at the interface between Synthetic Organic Chemistry and Biology and possesses highly complementary skills in organic synthesis (synthesis of bioactive molecules, glycochemistry, nucleic acid chemistry, organometallic chemistry), and in biochemistry (enzymology, protein and nucleic acids). We are interested in the development of new chemical tools for the study or regulation of biological processes. The chemistry of carbohydrates is a dominant feature of our activities and part of our research focuses on molecular events controlled by carbohydrates and glycoconjugates. New research projects are also starting in the field of post-translational modifications of proteins and epigenetics.
Our research projects are focused on two main objectives:
These two aspects are highly complementary and closely related: the projects in the field of chemical biology require the development of new and efficient synthesis of the different chemical tools; conversely, the methodology developments in glycochemistry could be applied to new biological issues.
