Welcome to a seminar series´ webinar organized by the multi-disciplinary research community Drug Discovery and Delivery (DrugTech) at the University of Eastern Finland.
Professor Doctor Tessa Lühmann, Institute of Pharmacy and Food Chemistry, Pharmaceutics and Food technology, University of Würzburg, Germany, will give a talk on the title Molecular design of bioconjugates.
Welcome and concluding remarks by Chairman, Professor Arto Urtti, School of Pharmacy, University of Eastern Finland. No registration required. The event will be recorded. In participating in the seminar, you automatically agree to the recording.
Motivated by a specific interest in regenerative medicine, our research activities focus on the design of engineered therapeutic proteins to develop bioresponsive drug release systems, releasing drugs as a result of an external, biochemical stimulus in diseased tissues. In the field of protein formulation, we explore novel and innovative methods to gain further insights into protein stability and sites of modification at the molecular level.
Methods and Techniques
Recombinant, synthetic and semi-synthetic peptide and protein synthesis, genetic code expansion, site-specific protein modification, bioorthogonal chemistries, PEGylation, PEG alternative polymers, bioresponsive drug delivery, mass spectrometry
