The Shoshan Group at the University of Zurich

Peptide Synthesis

Bioinorganic Chemistry

Combinatorial Tools

Mechanistic Studies

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 compounds for the selective chelation of toxic heavy metals towards therapeutics and environmental remediation.
