«Natural products based consectetur molecules for target laborum. and drug discovery enim in pharmaceutical research»

Venue: Universityof Geneva
30 quai E. Ansermet, 1200, Geneva
Lecture CycleConférence de la Société Chimique de Genève
Detailed DescriptionNatural products with their specific structural features deliver chemical starting points in drug discovery to develop innovative therapies for diseases for which no or only unsatisfactory treatments exist. The evolved function of natural products in regulating a plethora of diverse biological pathways in nature makes them to a biologically biased and complementary source of chemical probes to identify novel mechanisms of molecular interactions. As there is a high need for specific modulators of new targets, the identification of novel natural product chemotypes and the elucidation of their mechanism of action are gaining an increasing attraction in today’s drug research. Selected examples will illustrate how the investigation of novel natural products and natural products-inspired synthetics in phenotypic assays can be shuttles to a new biological space of therapeutic relevance.
