Our research focus is on the design, synthesis, and development of novel biologically active molecules, in particular, but not exclusively, of anticancer and antiviral compounds. Our main objective is to contribute towards the discovery and the development of new therapies against diseases with a clear unmet medical need. To achieve this, we combine a variety of drug design and approaches, from classical medicinal chemistry to more advanced computer-based drug design methods. The highly interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of our research is reflected in our publications, and through the extensive network of collaboration we have established during the years.
