Research groups

Be­low are the in­tro­duc­tions of the research groups that op­er­ate partly or wholly at the Faculty of Pharmacy (in alphabetical order).

Please note that many Principal Investigators and their research groups are part of the Drug Research Program units.

Bio­activ­ity Screen­ing
We are experts in antimicrobial drug discovery, exploring new ways to confront the global challenge of emerging drug resistance amongst bacteria.

Chemical Microsystems Lab
Pharmaceutical chemistry, Drug metabolism, microfluidics, polymer microfabrication, analytical Chemistry, mass spectrometry.

Clin­ical Pharmacy
Medication safety, optimizing pharmacotherapy and promoting health.

Computational Drug Discovery
We conduct problem-oriented computational research, i.e. we select the most suitable methods to solve scientific questions. We also develop our own computational tools. Recurrent scientific questions are related to ligand binding and ligand design, and to protein sequence-structure-function relationships and molecular evolution.

Drug Delivery
Optimal delivery of drugs to their target sites is essential for drug efficacy and safety. Drug delivery unit explores the key pharmacokinetic factors in drug delivery as well as new technologies for delivering drugs, especially to the eyes.

Research group studying bacterial biofilms and the intracellular pathogen Chlamydia pneumoniae. Our work focuses on identifying strategies to fight persistent infections caused by them.

Ex­tra­cel­lu­lar ves­icles
The Extracellular Vesicles group studies submicron membrane vesicles released by most cells, and present in all body fluids, but also e.g., in oceans.

Im­mun­oViro­Ther­apy Lab
Development of novel platforms for cancer immunotherapy.

Laboratory of Neurotherapeutics
Creating next generation products and solutions that will change lives.

Nanomedi­cines and Bio­med­ical En­gin­eer­ing
Nanomedicine, Biomedical Engineering and Controlled Drug Delivery.

Phar­ma­ceut­ical Bio­phys­ics
Combining experimental and computational methodologies to generate mechanistic insight into drug action and drug delivery systems.

Pharmacoeconomics is a sub-discipline of health economics, studying the cost-effectiveness of pharmaceutical therapies.

PREP in Neuro­de­gen­er­at­ive Dis­orders
Our goal is to find a way to stop neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease by targeting on PREP enzyme.

Talman Lab aims at discovering new ways to treat heart diseases by investigating the molecular mechanisms of cardiac regeneration to identify new drug targets.
