Nejra is doing her PhD through "Research Platform Next Generation Macrocycles to Address Challenging Protein Interfaces". This research platform examines a certain type of molecule, so-called macrocycles, from different angles. These complex structures are not easy to build, but they are becoming increasingly important as starting materials for drugs that can modulate complex protein-protein interactions and thus provide new approaches to cancer therapy, for example. We will design promising macrocycles using computer-assisted methods, which will then be manufactured in the laboratory using modern synthetic methods.
