Our article on the utilisation of ferrocenyl derivatives of mefloquine against schistosomiasis is now out in MedChemComm! It is really great to collaborate with Prof. Jennifer Keiser! Congrats to Faustine, Jeannine, Gordana, Lea and Marta!
We are very happy to welcome our new Msc student Maximilian Fellert who is arriving from the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich (Germany). Max will work with Anna on the preparation of novel ruthenium-based anticancer drug candidates.
A big welcome to our new PhD student Yan Lin (middle of the picture). Yan Lin, who comes from China, will work on the preparation of novel antiparasitic drug candidates. We thank the CSC for providing her with a scholarship.
Our collaborative article with Prof. Katja Heinze has just been accepted in Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. This paper reports the utilization of cheap, stable and easy-to-prepare Cr(III) complexes as PDT photosensitizers. Congratulations to Uttara and Sven.
Gilles received the European Bioinorganic Chemistry Medal in recognition for his exceptional contribution to the ield of bioinorganic chemistry on the 30th of August 2018 in Birmingham. This medal is given to a scientist in his early career and who is working in a laboratory of a European country.
We are very happy to welcome Prof. Cristina Muntenau from Carol Davila University for a three-month visit in our labs in Paris, financially supported by l’Institut Français de Roumanie. Enjoy your stay in France!
Excellent news, our collaborative article with Prof. Santiago Gómez-Ruiz reporting the use of mesopours silica nanoparticles functionalised with a Ru(II) complex for PDT applications is now out in Dalton Trans.!
Congratulations to Marie and Emma for their review article on the applications of ruthenium complexes covalently linked to nucleic acid derivatives which has been accepted in Molecules. This is the first article with the Hollenstein Lab at the Pasteur Institute.
