In our lab novel anti-cancer drugs are being developed inspired by known natural or non-natural active compounds. The aim is improving the activity or simplifying the corresponding molecules without loss of activity. Newly synthesized organic compounds are screened in order to gain insight by a structure activity relationship (SAR-study). Final goal is development of new types and improved synthetic drugs that can be used in cancer treatment.
