We are a research group dedicated to peptidomimetic chemistry

Welcome to the

Guichard Lab

Based in Bordeaux, 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.
