Selective Metal Detoxification

Our group conducts multidisciplinary research that combines peptide, inorganic and medicinal chemistry, as well as molecular biology to solve current healthcare and environmental challenges by applying a broad range of techniques and skill-sets.

Our main goal is to develop new drug candidates for the selective chelation of toxic heavy metals towards therapeutics and environmental remediation.
