Our research in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry contributes to sustainable development in many different ways. Among others, we work with
Good Health and well-being
Several of our projects aim to develop new methods and new medicinal molecules to study cell biological and medical problems. This can be, for instance, new methods for diagnosis and treatment using light-activated molecules. The new tools can also be used for further research, for instance, to understand the physiological role of target proteins, a first step in the development of new medicines for better health.
Affordable and clean energy
With their basic research on organic molecules, our researchers want to understand how molecules work and interact when it comes to energy. In doing so, they want to contribute to the development of new energy-efficient and cleaner technologies in the future.
Our researchers are also working on developing new environmentally friendly and more energy efficient synthesis methods that contribute to the sustainable development of new materials with reduced energy requirements.
