The work is almost exclusively performed in collaboration with other research groups and relates to three major areas:
- Peptides as research tools to understand disease
- Peptides as diagnostics to detect, monitor or predict disease
- Peptides as therapeutics to cure disease
To allow for optimal and flexible input in the above areas we have extensive knowledge and infrastructure available for the parallel synthesis of peptides and for the efficient and cost-effective synthesis of modified peptides (affinity-tags, fluorescent or isotope labels, click handles, cyclic or multimeric constructs, lipid extensions, etc).
