New carbohydrate-derived scaffolds for the generation of bioactive libraries

Objective

This project constitutes a unique opportunity to train students in a highly interdisciplinary context, which reproduces the methods and general organisation of drug-discovery programs in modern pharmaceutical industry. Young researchers will be confronted with different technologies (classical and combinatorial synthetic methods, biotechnological approaches, computational studies, NMR spectroscopy), and with the need of harmonising their approach and results toward a common goal. Both PhD students and post -doctoral researchers will be trained in the project. The training programme includes, inter alia, 1-2 days courses on various aspects of glycochemistry and drug discovery, and secondment periods in different Network laboratories for specific training on specialised equipment (SPR-Biacore, high field NMR, computers and combinatorial synthesis equipment). A short training stage at the pharmaceutical industry is also planned.
