Carbohydrate Chemistry and Glycotechnology

Project: Research area

Project Details

Description

Carbohydrate chemistry (Glycochemistry) is dealing with the development of efficient target oriented synthetic methods of biologically active carbohydrate analogues, glycomimetics and biobased systems. The focus is set on the design and synthesis of pharmacological chaperones for the treatment of lysosomal disorders and the development and of small molecule probes for activity based protein profiling of glycoprocessing enzymes. Glycotechnology is dealing with the technological application of carbohydrate based structures. The focus is set on the development of tailor made carbohydrate based polymers by modification with monosaccharidic building blocks for application as 3D bioprinting inks and other (bio)medical and technological applications.
