Biomolecule Research Institute

Biomolecule Research Institute

Description

INBIO was created to promote in-terdisciplinary collaboration in order to study the role of new molecules, either obtained by synthesis or isolated from natural sources, in various biological processes. The study of their potential in the development of agrochemicals, against diseases of commercial crops, and the study of the molecular bases of pathologies and the use of bio-molecules in the generation of new drugs for the treatment or diagnosis of human pathologies of special prevalence.

Lines of research

There are four main lines of action of this institute:

  1. Identification of targets involved in molecular and cellular mechanisms in animals and vegetables.
  2. Identification, design and synthesis of molecules with biological activity for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of animal and plant pathologies, with the aim of developing new drugs or agrochemicals.
  3. Functional characterization and interaction of biological targets with bioactive molecules using techniques from Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology and Omics.
  4. Thermodynamic and kinetic-mechanistic studies of biomolecules relevant to biological processes.
