Research highlights

Protein-ligand interactions are essential to most of processes controling living organisms. Using rational and combinatorial designs, we study the creation of novel proteins to detect, capture or modulate protein-ligand interactions. We have thus developped from hyperstable archaeal Sul7d proteins a novel class of artificial affinity proteins that we named Affitins. We are also seeking to explore interactions between proteins and ligands at the genome-wide level to identify targets.  In the context of different pathologies, our aims are now to generate new findings in basic research and translate them into novel biotechnological and biomedical applications.
