Home Departments Group Department of Biomedicinal Chemistry Research Unit on BioActive Molecules

The Research Unit on BioActive Molecules works on the discovery of small molecules with activity on biologically relevant processes, with special interest on sphingolipid metabolism and functions. Sphingolipids play essential roles in the outcome and progression of diseases, including both rare diseases (sphingolipidosis) and diseases of high socio-economic impact (cancer, infectious diseases, diabetes 2, neurodegenerative diseases, etc.) thereby providing attractive targets to develop tools of use in diagnosis and prognosis, and leads in drug discovery. The research conducted emcompasses from the design and synthesis of molecules and libraries to their biological study in cell lines, including sphingolipidomics.
