Lamers Lab

Development of Macrocyclic Peptide Therapeutics

 The Lamers Lab is located at the Institute for Drug Discovery, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Faculty of Medicine, Leipzig University 


Research focus 

  • Macrocyclic Peptides as therapeutic compounds
    • Structure-activity relationship studies
    • optimization of binding affinities and pharmacokinetic parameter
    • Solid phase peptide synthesis and manual chemical peptide modification
    • in vitro characterization of synthesized peptides with SPR, ELISA, BLI, ITC and more
  • Chemical modified Phage Display generating Macrocyclic Peptides to identify tool compounds and peptide leads 
  • Targeting the Complement System and intrinsic coagulation cascade
