ChemSynBio – Chemical & Synthetic Biology for Biotherapies


In the ChemSynBio group (Chemical & Synthetic Biology for Biotherapies) we combine the power of chemical and synthetic biology to create protein-based precision therapeutics and biomedical tools. Our main goals are to treat brain tumors and other brain diseases, and to understand and improve drug transport across the blood-brain barrier.

ChemSynBio investiga y trabaja en transferencia de tecnología en la siguientes áreas:

  • Development of bio- and nano- therapeutics, especially to treat brain tumors.
  • Engineering and chemistry of antibodies, proteins, and peptides for biomedical applications.
  • Study and engineering of transport systems to cross the blood-brain barrier.
  • Development of conditionally-active proteins.
  • Generation of new proteins through library selections and directed evolution.
