Welcome to CRC 1093


Collaborative Research Centre 1093:

Supramolecular Chemistry on Proteins

Protein function is intimately connected with supramolecular chemistry: Substrate processing and various levels of regulation involve specific noncovalent interactions. Likewise, protein folding, assembly and protein-protein interactions are governed by intermolecular forces and their specific inhibition or support represents a very promising area for external interference, with profound mechanistic and therapeutic implications.

The CRC aims at applying recent knowledge and methods from supramolecular chemistry to achieve specific interaction with proteins by artificial ligands.

CRC1093 Workshop

Drug Discovery and its Challenges

The drug discovery workshop provides insight into applied research in the pharmaceutical industry from target identification to clinical studies and emphasises the challenges of classical and modern screening methods. The workshop is a full day seminar with some short introductory lectures given by Oliver von Ahsen and literature talks that should be prepared and presented by the students in teams of two.

Lecturer: Oliver von Ahsen (Global Drug Discovery - Bayer Pharma AG, Berlin)
