Associate Professor Thomas Poulsen receives 9.995.548 DKK in Ascending Investigator grant  from Novo Nordisk Foundation, for the project: “Unorthodox protein reactive electrophiles for biotechnology”. In this project the focus will be on developing high complexity new chemically reactive groups that are compatible with biological systems, and might enable construction of novel types of bio conjugates. The synthesis of these complex reactive compounds will be integrated in a detailed image based mapping of the proteomic targets as well as the overall bioactivity. The goal is to identify those special molecules, that can be used as starting point for further development of chemical processes or reagents for biological drugs.

Congratulations to Thomas!
