The laboratory has strong expertise in the isolation and characterization of natural products and biosynthesis. We employ chemical biology to solve problems in human health. To achieve this goal, we focused on the discovery of microbial natural products from the Baltic area, which includes a fundamental understanding of their structures, biosynthesis, and biological activities. To further drive the research, we are closely collaborating with other groups at LIOS and the Italian biotech company, NAICONS. We offer a friendly, flexible, and innovative working environment.
To lead a project that involves the discovery of microbial natural products from the Baltic area.To identify the bioactive natural products by interdisciplinary approaches (bioinformatics, metabolomics, omics, bioassays-guided isolation).To characterize the bioactive natural products by spectroscopic techniques (LC-MS, NMR, and chemical derivatization/degradation/synthesis) and molecular biology techniques (heterologous expression and in vitro biochemical assay).
PhD (PhD thesis submitted) in Life Sciences in a field relevant to Natural Product Research.
