Biological Glycochemistry Group


The scientific activity of the research group is mainly devoted to the synthesis and selective transformations of carbohydrates, with the aim of obtaining molecules with utility in biological studies and with medical applications. We study selective transformations using chemical methods and biocatalysis with commercially available enzymes or obtained by the research team. The multidisciplinary character of the group is reinforced by collaborations with other groups from complementary disciplines and backgrounds.
