What we do ?

A unique know-how in the design, synthesis and characterization of artificial foldamers

Our main research lines include the development of synthetic and design methodologies towards molecular objects as large and complex as small proteins ; the investigation of receptors and molecular motors based on these folded architectures ; the study of potential biological applications of aromatic oligoamide foldamers, in particular to recognize protein surfaces ; and exploration of properties such as electron transport which may be of use in new materials. These projects have fostered a very active collaboration with x-ray crystallographers and our involvement in the set-up of an x-ray diffraction facility.

 

We are affiliated to the CBMN Laboratory, a joint research unit of the CNRS, the University of Bordeaux, and the Bordeaux Polytechnic Institute. Our laboratory space is embedded in the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology, a research team incubator that promotes emergence and interdisciplinary research on the University of Bordeaux campus.
