Moleclular recognition of DNA:RNA hybrid and multi-stranded structures in bioanalytical and in vitro systems
Project funded by Croatian science foundation (HrZZ): IP-2018-01-4694
Multi-chromophore probes for specific DNA, RNA and protein structure recognition (BioMultiChromoProbes)
Project financed by Croatian science foundation (HrZZ)
D) Multifunctional molecular sensing of DNA/RNA secondary structure by chemical sensors - DNA/RNA-MolSense
Molecular recognition of nucleic acids is of fundamental importance e.g. for gene transcription and regulation, protein synthesis or cell-division. Small molecules selectively targeting specific DNAs or RNAs are therefore highly interesting not only to understand such processes in more detail on a molecular level but also for potential medicinal applications, as sensors or probes for fluorescence based bioimaging as well as for analytical purposes in isolated biosamples.
C) ESF - HR.3.2.01-0254 "Enhacement of the capacity in medicinal chemistry and bioactive systems research".
RBI Project team of five young researchers and postdocs works on scientific research in medicinal chemistry, relevant for the Croatian pharmaceutical industry and Health sector. The enhacement of the leadership, entrapreneurship and research capabilities of young researchers and postdocs will be fullfiled by education on specific workshops. With the aim of establishing connection with the scientists in the European research area, the dissemination of the project results will be accomplished.
