The research is focused on the design, production and evaluation of carboligation biocatalysts and biologically active molecules. Biocatalytic carbon-carbon bond formation, in the core of a chemoenzymatic methodology, has the potential to access stereochemically complex molecules that are not easily produced by conventional organic synthesis. Hence, they are particularly appropriate for obtaining new types of structures (i.e. to generate molecular diversity) accessible for investigations in drug discovery.
