A large part of our work concentrates on the design and synthesis of small molecule modulators of new (i.e., yet unexplored) targets. These modulators can be both enabling chemical tools to interrogate biology or therapeutically useful compounds. From a chemical point of view, much of our work is centred on the chemical synthesis of novel nucleoside, some of which demonstrate promising antitumor activities, and glycosphingolipid analogues as iNKT cell modulators.
