Welcome to the Peptide Synthesis Group's Website
We are the Peptide Synthesis Group of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto, and also integrated in the Centre for Chemical Research of the University of Porto, Portugal. The team's research is highly interdisciplinary, spanning from drug design to new biomaterials for drug delivery and biomedical engineering, where amino acids and peptides almost always have a key role. That explains our motto, Peptide bonds across science and technology.
While our presence in the international Peptide Chemistry scenario has been acknowledged by the European Peptide Society, our special concern in developing new molecules to fight infectious diseases pushes most of our scientific effort, as shown by our recent publications and projects.
