RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science RIKEN-Max Planck Joint Research Division for Systems Chemical Biology

Division Director: Hiroyuki Osada (D.Agr.)

Research Summary

Hiroyuki  Osada(D.Agr.)

Exchanges of researchers and their resources between Max Planck Institutes (Groups of Prof. Herbert Waldmann and Prof. Peter Seeberger) and RIKEN promote more effective use of research resources as well as information and technology in the field of systems chemical biology. In addition to our unique chemical libraries (NPDepo), both of the laboratories have different technologies to solve chemical biological issues, such as methods for exploring specific interactions between ligands and proteins of interest, and derivatization by chemical synthesis for making new compounds with better biological activities, opening the way for not only understanding of various biological phenomena but also drug discovery.
