Scientific and technical expertise:
  1. Chemistry and Biology of Retinoids
  2. Stereocontrolled Synthesis of Carotenoids and Related Polyenes
  3. Design and Synthesis of Epigenetic Modulators Based on Natural Products
  4. Computational Analysis of Pericyclic and Other Concerted Reactions, Organometallic and Catalytic Processes
At the moment, our efforts is focused in:
  • Design and Synthesis of Innovative Anti-cancer drugs.
  • Development of new biosensors of nanoparticles for high sensitivity molecular recognition, with strong  potential in diagnosis  and practical detection of molecules.
  • New drugs for culture epi-neuronal cells, with application in the treatment of CNS diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
  • Organic synthesis oriented to a diversity of natural products with antitumor activity
