Main research activities: The major interest is the design and synthesis of antibiotic resistance breakers – new molecular solutions to the AMR challenge. Our focus is on carbapenemase inhibitors and membrane-active small molecules. In collaboration with the LacZyme group and international collaborators, we have a unique program in fragment- and structure-based molecular design of carbapenemase inhibitors. Moreover, we have experience in natural-product synthesis and are involved in a series of natural-product based drug discovery projects focusing on anti-bacterial compounds in collaboration with other CANS-related groups.
