In our research team, we are mainly interested by "molecular programming" with the aim to explore or manipulate complex biological systems such as living cells or organisms. In other words, we design molecules that have built into their structure a chemical program enabling them to perform specific tasks autonomously within biological environments. Recently, we developed various molecular devices programmed for the selective delivery of anticancer drugs. These functional systems include programming components like self-immolative linkers, chemical amplifiers, self-opening macrocycles, etc... that pilot the process of drug release in a stringently controlled fashion.

Now, the time has come to push to the clinic our most promising drug delivery system for cancer chemotherapy. To this end, we need to carry out the full preclinical study. The cost of this trial is approximately of 550 000 euros. To reach this goal we need your help… If you want to support financially our project, please follow this link.
Last 6th and 7th of October, three members of the team were at the « Photonic and Electronic Molecular Machines » (PEM2) symposium at Toulouse.
Last 19th and 20th of September, the ligue contre le cancer organized the Relais pour la vie that is a sporting and solidary event in tribute to cancer patients that allows to raise funds for the fight again the disease.
