Research Focus

The general research interest of the Laboratory for Organic and Biomimetic Chemistry is the synthesis and modification of peptides and oligonucleotides for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. The current research topics can be subdivided in the following research activities:

Conformationally defined multipodal peptides as functional miniproteins

  • Estrogen receptor mimics for solid phase extraction
  • Transcription factor mimics as DNA binding ligands
  • Epitope mimics as Peptide vaccins

Novel techniques for crosslinking, labeling and conjugation of biomacromolecules

  • Crosslinking of oligonucleotides: Antisense, antigene, crosslink repair, decoy DNA
  • Labeling of peptides: Imaging, conjugation
