Our research explores the interface between chemical biology, medicinal chemistry and supramolecular chemistry. We use modern analytical techniques to study dynamic combinatorial libraries: dynamic networks of interchanging chemical species. We apply these dynamic networks as a hit-identification tool in drug discovery to gain insight into diseases’ etiology and study the properties derived from the molecular networks in the emerging field of systems chemistry to mimic functions encountered in Nature.
