Anna Olkkonen, a BSc from the School of biomedicine (University of Eastern Finland) started recently her MSc thesis in our research group. Her thesis focuses in the computational study of TRPA1 attenuators. During the summer, she will build model of TRPA1 ion channel, study the different binding sites and predict the different binding modes for […]
Our recent reviev article “Recent Advances on Molecular Modeling Studies of Transient Receptor Potential Ankyrin 1” published in Medicine Research wasselected for the journal’s 2021 #1 issue covre story. The review article writen by MSc. Carita Sallomy, Adj Prof Maija Lahtela-Kakkonen and Dr. Juri Timonen is the first literature review of different computtional studies of […]
The Björkqvist foundation has awarded FM Carita Sallomy a study grant for her Docotral thesis. The Björkqvist Foundation is a local foundation that fumds resaearchers from Kangasala. The grant was awarded for Sallomy’s studoes that are aiming to identify the binding site of stilbenoid-like TRPA1 antagonists and utilize this knowledge into the design of novel […]
The Finnish Cultural Foundation has granted 32 500 € for the design, synthesis and evaluation of boron containing amino acids for treatment of malignant brain tumors. The study aims to development of novel amino acid-based boron carriers to be used in boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) of malignant brain tumors. The BNCT is a method […]
Our research aims to synthesise and test novel bioactive heterocycles and medicinal boron compounds and to develop novel antibiotic strategies as well as more efficient, eco-friendly methodologies.
Our research group is comprised of dynamic and innovative scientists with a large collaboration network. We consistently offer opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and PhD students to join our research team and scientific endeavour.
As every successful venture, we have also started from scratch. Our grassroot efforts have grown into a flourishing field of talented researchers. And we have no intentions of slowing down.
In collaboration we believe! Science is more productive when done in combined effort. Currently, we have several ongoing collaborations with numerous research group in Finland.
Little science can be done without funding. Thus, we are immensely thankful for each and every of the Institutions and Societies who continue to make our research possible.
