About This PhD Project

Project Description

The project is focused on proteolytic enzymes of the cathepsin type that are critically involved in pathologies and are therapeutic targets. Cathepsins of human origin and those from pathogens and parasites will be investigated. The aim of the project is to analyze the structure and function of cathepsins and develop novel inhibitory molecules for their regulation. The research in the field of biochemistry and molecular biology employs the following main approaches: functional proteomics and chemical genomics, recombinant protein expression, enzymology, protein crystallography, and molecular modeling.
