Welcome to Our Group's Website
We are a Peptide & Medicinal Chemistry research team belonging to the Group of Organic Synthesis of Bioactive Compounds of CIQUP, 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 always have a role. That explains our motto, Peptide bonds against disease.
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 neglected diseases pushes most of our scientific effort, as shown by our recent publications and projects.
