WELCOME TO THE GUICHARD PEPTIDOMIMETIC CHEMISTRY GROUP WEBSITE

We are located in the European Institute of Chemistry and Biology (IECB) on the Bordeaux-Pessac University Campus, south west of France. Our team is part of the unit “Chimie et Biologie des Membranes et nanoobjets” (CBMN), CNRS/University Bordeaux 1/ENITAB (UMR 5248).
Our group’s research focuses on the biomimetic chemistry of peptides and proteins. We are interested in designing and elaborating systems with protein like structure and functions and to investigate and develop their biological and biomedical applications. Although centered on chemical synthesis, our research program is based on a multidisciplinary approach involving spectroscopic studies, crystallographic analyses, combinatorial techniques, binding studies.
