Our article with Prof. Jennifer Keise has just been accepted in Parasites & Vectors. Congratulations to Valentin and Jeannine. If you want to see very cool SEM images of schistosomes “attacked” by organometallic compounds, then just look https://parasitesandvectors.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13071-018-3132-x
We are very happy to welcome our first Alexander von Humboldt post-doc Sarah Keller. Sarah has just finished a PhD thesis with Prof. Ed Constable at the University of Basel (Switzerland). Sarah will work on the preparation of organometallic compounds as antiparasitic agents.
Our work on the encapsulation of Re(I)-based PDT photosensitizers into core-crosslinked star polymer nanoparticles with Mikey Whittaker and Thomas Davis from Monash University (Australia) and Stefano Ferrari from the University of Zurich (Switzerland) is now out in J. Mat. Chem. B.
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.
