Group Name: Medicinal Chemistry
Group Leader: Ing. Milan Jakubek, Ph.D.
The main focus of our group is biochemical, cellular and molecular biological aspects of cell differentiation and oncogenic transformation dependent on proteases. The aim of our group’s research is to study molecular recognition, intermolecular interactions, and the use of this knowledge for the benefit of life.
We are preparing molecular systems for early diagnosis of diseases, preparing drug dosing systems and drug delivery systems for more effective and safe treatment. We exploit and discover new knowledge of drug design, synthesis, supramolecular chemistry, nanotechnology, molecular engineering and other newly formed disciplines of modern science.
