Research Areas

Our research interest focusses on two fields: Abiotic modification of native proteins involves mature proteins that are covalently and regioselectively decorated by non-natural moieties in order to redirect their functional properties. The second field of activity addresses the structural and energetic foundations of molecular recognition in artificial host-guest systems. The conclusions are incorporated into the design of specific receptors for anions, self-assembly systems and catalytic reactions.
