Our latest publication on molecular recognition within the cavity of a foldamer helix bundle has been published and highlighted on the cover of the Journal of the American Chemical Society. About the Cover: Towards the development of functional water-soluble … Continue reading
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.
Our latest publication on anion recognition by helical oligoureas has been published and highlighted on the cover of Chemistry a European Journal.
Not to be missed! IECB will host the Bordeaux 2016 Symposium on Foldamers on September 26-28, 2016. Registration Deadline June 15, 2016 !
Arup Roy has been awarded a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to work in the group. Welcome ! »
on receiving her Ph.D !
Gavin, Karolina, Caterina, Juliette, and Laura‘s publication on the control of foldamer quaternary arrangements has been published and highlighted in Nature Chemistry. The work has also been highlighted by the CNRS and on the cover of Nature Chemistry.
Our two recent studies on the helical folding propensity of peptide/oligourea chimeras and on the design of oligourea sequences for DNA delivery into cells have just been published.
Three new PhD students join the group. Welcome to Johanne, Diane and Laura.
Not to be missed! IECB will host the Bordeaux 2015 Symposium on Foldamers on January 26-28, 2015. Registration Deadline December 15, 2014 !
Christel Dolain and Morgane Pasco have been appointed lecturer (Maître de Conférences) at the University of Bordeaux (Unité de Formation des Sciences Chimiques) and CNRS « Chargé de Recherche », respectively.
