Supramolecular Chemistry & Chemical Biology

Confinement, encapsulation, self-assembly and switchable (supra)molecular systems, are representative of our ongoing research activities in supramolecular chemistry. For the future contract, our group aims at extending these activities through the development of new topics ranging from bio-sensing to catalysis and "smart" molecular materials. In particular, our technologies for bio-compatible probes responding to the activity of specific target enzymes have matured to such an extent that we are now swiftly moving towards their practical application to the realm of chemical biology, the interrogation of live organisms with man-made molecules. 

These fields of research can be organized in three distinct parts: the chemistry in confined space – chemical biology and biosensing – stimuli-responsive molecules and materials.
